The American linden, also called basswood, is a tree that is commonly found in Quebec, including in cities, particularly in parks and even along sidewalks.

This type of metal alloy is a durable and recyclable material that will not rust over time. You can simply rinse with soapy water, wash and reuse it for many years. Why this shape of brewer? In fact, “tea ball” type infuser is sometimes difficult to fill, the mixture falls off, it makes a mess and it is time consuming. Furthermore, the holes of this kind of mesh are often big enough to let pass some blend into the water. This one is designed to have a wide opening of 6 cm in diameter and tiny holes. It does not need to be closed to prevent the product from falling in the water. However, some models have only a few holes in the metal between the ingredients and the water. Indeed, we recommend that you verify your brewer has a fine mesh that will promote flavour diffusion through more points of contact. As a result, the water can circulate better and macerate well. Now, the battle is won! Gain More Autonomy An infuser is a must to be able to make a personalized decoction yourself at home. Without using pre-maid bag, you can adjust the amount of mixture that corresponds to your favourite taste, and you can also soak the herbal tea longer for a pronounced flavour. You can add more quantity than the recommended amount or it is possible to put less mixture for those who prefer subtlety. As you wish! Trick! For optimal taste, use either distilled water or source water rather than the local one that contains chlorine or chemical agents that changes the flavours of the beverage.

How Does it Taste? This plant has a woody flavor, subtle and all its own, halfway between mint and fir resin, making it a very refreshing drink. It also contains floral and tangy notes which bring complexity to its composition. It is also used in certain beers, gins, game broths, to cook as a substitute for bay leaf or to add flavor to several types of recipes. A detailed representation of the boreal forest in its wild state! A bit like the grape varieties of wine, its taste can be different depending on the terroir and the latitude where it is picked. Does it Contain Caffeine? Despite its confusing name, it does not contain theine or caffeine and grows in large quantities in the boreal forest of Quebec. This plant helps relax and releases muscle tension. It is ideal to take it after dinner to promote digestion and a good night’s sleep. You will therefore be able to fall asleep normally, without fear of insomnia. Is it Safe to Consume Labrador Tea Flowers And Leaves? There is a lot of information circulating about Labrador tea and raising questions about its toxicity. The two factors involved are: 1. Andromedotoxin Several shrubs of the Ericaceae family contain andromedotoxin (a toxic active ingredient) in small amounts. However, it is only when ingested in large doses that this element can cause cramps, headaches, or difficulty in the intestines. Thus, followers of this plant who drink it on a daily basis do not report having experienced these symptoms or complications. Everything remains in moderation during its consumption. 2. Tannin This substance is used by plants in their defense system against pathogenic microbes. We find tannin in trees, leaves, fruits, and in our diet in general. Tannins are therefore present in beer, cider, tea, coffee, and especially in red wine, which gives it its dark color. For very sensitive stomachs, it can be difficult to digest. Before childbirth (during the third trimester), First Nations women consumed this infusion three times a day to promote relaxation, counter inflammation, and facilitate labor. Where And When Can You Find The Labrador Tea Flower And Leaves? It grows in acidic, cool, and humid soils such as peat bogs, coniferous forests, marshes, or in areas that have been logged. It can be picked all year round, but it is best to harvest it in late summer or fall. Indeed, if the leaf is too young, its essential oil concentration is lower than when it has had time to mature well. It will then contain less flavor as well as a decrease in medicinal properties. Otherwise, it becomes easier and easier to find it in a natural grocery store near you or in our online store.
