Wintergreen Grade 1 (20g Bag)

Product code: CSTO-58

In spite of the fact that this small robust indigenous plant of Quebec (gaulthérie couchée) 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).

In infusion, its liquor, light and sweet, is strongly marked by the essential oil it carries (methyl salicylate) with its pronounced and characteristic taste, reminding of its use in muscle balms.

In the finish, a delicate hint of sweetness is invigorated with a long sparkling sensation, similar to its pain relief and analgesic effects!

: Stems and leaves of Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens).
