Sweet Gale is a chameleon of an herb, slightly reminiscent of green tea. The ground leaves have a delicate flavour that is sightly lemony and basil like. It’s mild enough not to overpower fish but strong enough to hold its own with bison or beef. We use it along with oregano, basil, and yarrow in Italian and Mediterranean dishes. You might even consider sprinkling it atop a frothy cocktail to add depth and mystique!
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.
All ingredients are foraged from the Northern Saskatchewan Wilderness. Boreal Heartland is dedicated to sustainable and ethical harvest of boreal plants, providing income for Indigenous residents and clean, healthy products for the world.
