Labrador Tea Grade One (20g Bag)
Labrador Tea, or Greenland Ledon, is not related to the tea plant, but its therapeutic virtues are sought after, just like those of Camellia Sinensis. This wild harvest comes from areas of the wetlands of Lac St-Jean where the plant is exposed to the warm rays of the sun.
The presence of stems may seem surprising at first glance, but the stems contain a great concentration of the benefits associated with Labrador Tea. The infusion is delicately tart, herbal and reminiscent of fir and dill.
Its essential oil is considered to be anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and effective in treating various broncho-pulmonary ailments. Labrador Tea is also known for a multitude of other benefits related to the menstrual cycle and insomnia among others.
Please note: Due its high tannin content, extreme high doses may cause stomach pain or cramps. Avoid excessive consumption. Not recommended during early pregnancy or for small children.

The leaves from this small robust indigenous plant (gaulthérie couchée) are picked in the wild forests of Quebec. In spite of the fact that it is not related to tea, its English name, Wintergreen, appropriately evokes the refreshing effect that it can bring to different types of inflammations (fevers, joint pains).
Harvested in the heart of our beautiful forests, the plants composing this herbal tea will sharpen your taste buds while also acting as a flu breaker, an anti-inflammatory medicine and a powerful release for the respiratory tract.
