    Dad told me all about mauby ages ago. When he went to St. Vincent twenty years ago, he drank mauby all the time and really enjoyed it. He couldn’t wait to find a source of it when he got back home. But when he eventually ordered some in a restaurant in Seven Sisters Road it tasted awful.

    I have the same experience with Lipton ice tea, which I drink all the time in Portugal in the Summer but can’t stand back in London. So I reckon there’s something about the temperature and the culture in which you drink something that makes it taste quite different.

    • http://www.TriniGourmet.com Sarina

      funny you should mention Lipton.. my uncle in the US is always having us send him boxes of the stuff… he says ours tastes different to the American … isn’t that odd? Tho I can vouch for the fact that Trinidadian KFC is worlds above US KFC … (weird eh?) :D

      have you had good mauby? :)

    This site should be more active, with frequent responses from you.

    I’ve asked about the health benefits(if any, apart from being a ‘refreshing drink’) of mauby, only to be left with….no answer ;-(

    • http://www.TriniGourmet.com Sarina

      I would love to be more active, however I am one person doing this as a labour of love and sometimes life and economic/familial responsibilities mean that commenting and updating have to take the backseat. I’m sure you understand :) . Your original comment did not make your question clear which was why it remained unanswered. The only study that has been conducted scientifically on mauby states that when taken in combination with coconut milk it can help to lower blood pressure. Other than that, everything else is folklore.

    Fantastic!! An actual response – despite the “economic/familial responsibilities”. Good. I thought this was one of those websites gathering dust, but I see the ‘dust’ has been shaken ;-)

    Thanks for the response, and I await the explanation of why ‘coconut milk’ added to mauby can help ;-)
