Wintergreen 1st Grade (20g Bag)
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).
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!
