Yes, that makes perfect sense. Hawaii is much closer to Asia than FL ;) That's a really neat idea with the soup ^_^ I'm gonna try that sometime! Thanks.

I would put it in tea but maybe that's just me. I also used it a little in asian dishes such as shrimp soup which I think maybe the best use of it as it is not a light herb but sort of musky if that makes sense.

I finally gave up growing it as it took over the entire garden and we spent considerable time digging it out. Not worth the trouble; this was also mentioned up thread. It is a serious concern..

"Musky" is a nice way of putting it - lol! To me it smells like Lemon Pledge furniture polish. In fact, there are some herbals that recommend using it for just that purpose.

I think aromatic might be the correct term? Not sure, probably my herb book describes it better. .
