What is epasote?

This is a herb or plant or something, which I think they use in Central America. I'm not sure how it's spelled, it might be epasote or epazote. They use it in cooking. What I'm trying to find out is what is it's name in English. Thanks.

Hola Jacqui:

Mi abuelita usaba mucho el EPAZOTE.........

EPAZOTE: Epazote - pronounced [eh-paw-ZOH-teh]
An herb well-known to Mexican and Caribbean cooking. The name comes from the Aztec (Nahuatl) epazotl. It is also known as pigweed or Mexican tea and is frequently regarded as a garden pest. It is most commonly used in black bean recipes to ward off some of the "negative" side affects of eating beans. Much like
cilantro, it is referred to as an "acquired taste". The herb is quite pungent and some say it smells like gasoline or kerosene.


Ahora yo se porque NO ME GUSTABA el sabor!!
