About the Event
Experience Chinese Herbal Medicine with all of your senses! See, smell, touch, taste the herbs as your guide, Alex Jacobs takes you on a guided tour of the medicinal plants in Kew Gardens.
Each plant has its own story to tell and a rich history of use in medicine and in everyday life in China and the far East. Learn about the taste and nature of each plant and how they are used in modern medicine all around the world.
