We’ve recently been talking about Labrador Tea here. It has been a while so we went out to the tundra and picked a handful and brewed up a cup of tea. Good stuff!
I don’t like it too strong so I use a scant teaspoon of the dried leaf or 3 (maybe 4) fresh leaves that have been cut in half. Flowers are good too when in bloom. And a bit of honey really brings out the flavor.
Like all wild edibles, identify because the Bog Rosemary looks similar, grows in the same areas and is not edible! Look for wooly undersides on the Labrador Tea and white flowers when in bloom. The Bog Rosemary has pink, bell shaped flowers and a smooth underside. For a picture of Labrador Tea look here:
Nothing like a nice hot cup of tea!
