Fireweed and Wild Mint
30 g / 1.06 oz Package
Our best selling blend, this is a dark savory tea, with a fresh minty aroma and full bodied taste. The amber liquor is lightly bitter with herbaceous flavour notes of cucumber, seaweed, moss and gentle mint. Caffeine free.
The bold flavour comes from bruising fresh fireweed leaves before drying. This exposes the natural compounds to oxygen (oxidation aka fermentation) and develops the flavour. This is the same process that turns green tea into black tea. Fireweed and wild mint are both traditionally used by Canadian First Nation peoples for their health benefits. Hand picked, sustainably in the Northern Saskatchewan wilderness.
If this is a new food for you be attentive when consuming.
