One of the first signs of spring, fresh spruce tips are bright green in and burst with tangy, almost citrusy flavour. When dried, they make an exquisite seasoning for roasted or grilled vegetables, pesto or pasta. With just a splash of lemon juice, spruce tips regain their vibrant shade. They pair well with cilantro and cumin, making them a unique addition to Mexican dishes. Don’t count them out in desserts, either! Spruce tip ice cream is one of our favourite sweet treats.
Boreal Heartland Labrador tea is known to many as Muskeg Tea. This tea is enjoyed around campfires throughout the north. It has a golden honey hue and steeps with an abundance of flavour and aroma. The herb’s smell is reminiscent of dry cedar and fresh pine, with notes of spice and mild Eucalyptus. The flavour finishes with notes of white tea and has a light honey mouth feel. Caffeine free. Wild harvested in Northern Saskatchewan.
