What to Expect

All of our tours start at Grum Ma’s House Cultural Center, which we founded to preserve and share the fascinating details of our Bahamian heritage. This Bush Tea and Culture Tour provides visitors the opportunity to learn about the diverse cultures and traditions that have written Bahamian history. We’ll discuss the native ingredients that are used in the tea before sampling them alongside some delicious pastries.

Around the Cultural Center, you’ll also be able to see authentic Junkanoo artifacts that are used during Bahamian celebrations and parades. You can enjoy Starbucks every day, so why not try authentic Bahamian Bush teas when you have the chance!
