Black Grass Jelly: Suong Sao, also called Chinese Mesona, it’s from a type of mint plant.
Add sugar and ice, and Vietnamese love it.
Yes, I gave it a go. I found it odourless and tasteless – not a hint of mint – but really no diffrent to the jelly that Aussies eat as kids, minus the artificial coloring and flavoring.
This herb plant is probably full of healthy goodness…
