Moujean Tea, also known as Bahama Berry, is a rare evergreen perennial shrub native to the Bahamas and Caribbean. Belonging to the Verbenaceae family, this plant is well-suited for container gardening and subtropical settings, reaching heights of about 3 to 4 feet. It's sometimes even used for Bonsai!

The small, glossy leaves of Moujean Tea are noted for their aromatic qualities, releasing a honey-citrus scent when disturbed. It flowers prolifically from late spring to early fall, producing clusters of tiny, white flowers that attract pollinators and add to its ornamental appeal. Pollinators, especially butterflies, love the flowers and sweet aroma of Bahama Berry blooms! It's tiny orange fruit a favorite as well.

Cultivation requires a sunny to partially shaded environment, well-draining soil, and moderate humidity, achievable through regular misting. Moujean Tea is both decorative and practical, as its leaves can be used to brew a refreshing and soothing herbal tea.

Traditionally valued for its soothing properties, Moujean Tea is believed to offer several medicinal benefits. Its aromatic leaves are used to make a calming tea that may help reduce stress and anxiety, and they contain antioxidants that could protect against oxidative stress. Additionally, Moujean Tea is thought to aid digestion, relieve inflammation, and support respiratory health. However, more scientific research is needed to confirm these effects. As always, consult a healthcare provider before using herbal remedies.
