From Wild Gaspe (Gaspésie Sauvage)

The native people used more than 1000 plant species. Labrador tea (Ledum groelandicum) is one of them.

This medium-sized shrub (30 to 120 cm) is mainly found in boreal or arctic climate.

Only the last leaves are hand-harvested.

While having a characteristic smell, the infusion of a few leaves reveals a mixture of plant aromas such as caraway, peppermint, tarragon and grapefruit.

This plant possesses a powerful aroma, do not infuse too long.
You can also prepare a venison marinade with Labrador tea and soak meat in it…

15 g brews around 20 cups.

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!).
