Wild Gaspe (Gaspésie Sauvage)

Recent Tasting Notes

70

This is an interesting herbal tea I found while shopping in Montreal. Locally cultivated in Quebec, this tea is apparently a favorite cure-all remedy of the indigenous Canadian people.

You have to steep this tea for a really long time, at least 13 to 15 minutes in my experience. Eventually, the water will turn a pale yellow and take on the flavor of the herb. It is slightly minty, with an almost white tea style grassy taste to it. In many ways, it tastes like drinking a forest (but in a good way!).

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
