Thanks for visiting! I look forward to helping you tap into all that Mother Nature has to offer us, whether it be through foraged teas, some of the salts and other goodies I think up, or through an educational stroll through the wildnerness.
Here is a short list of the items I may be able to find for you out in the wild:
These are typically ‘greener’ in flavour, a little more astringent or pungent. Think like a traditional white or green tea compared to a black tea. The base flavours of each plant really come through but without the same kind of depth or sweetness they would have later in the year.
Labrador “Green” Tea
Labrador Blossom Tea (flavourful and flowery!)
Sweet Gale “Green” Tea
Goldenrod “Green” Tea
Sweetfern “Green” Tea
Birch Twig and Maple Blossom Tea (early spring)
Spruce Tip Tea (early spring)
White Pine Tip Tea
Evergreens Tip Tea (Spruce, White Pine, and Cedar)
Boreal Blend “Green” Tea (White Pine Tips, Cedar, Birch Twig/buds and Labrador Tea)
Sweet Gale Tea
Sweet Fern Tea
Goldenrod Blossom Tea
Yarrow Blossom Tea
Birch Twig Tea
Wild Berry Leaf Tea (any combination of blueberry, raspberry, blackberry)
Boreal Blend Tea (White Pine, Cedar, Birch Twig, Labrador Tea)
These are teas that can be foraged throughout the entire year. Note however that due to the changing nature of the plants as the seasons transition, the winter flavour may not be the same as their spring flavour.
White Pine Tea
Sea salts blended with a variety of foraged goods, similar to the “Herbamare” brand of salt. Can be purchased in a fine grind or chunky for a finishing salt.
White Pine Salt
White Pine Tip Salt
Spruce Tip Salt
Springtime Greens Salt (Goldenrod and Yarrow, great for poultry!)
Goldenrod Blossom Salt
…and keep checking things out as this list will be changing and evolving as I become more aquainted with Mother Nature and the gifts she has to give us.
The Blog is under construction. Currently most of my posts are simple musings and entries that have helped me along my healing journey. And as plants have also helped, I’ll be writing some stories and posting some info about my flowering friends as well. Stay tuned!
