Jenny’s tip: if you visit there, you must try the local coffee and tea, which are provided free of charge in the Garden. And you could buy some back home to your friends. Except the local coffee and tea, you must try the tropical fruit called “mystery fruit”. You eat the fruit first, then when you eat the sour orange or bitter food, the tastes will be getting sweet.
