Wild White Pine Needle Tea
A traditional tea that has been enjoyed for millennia. Bursting with Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Break up the needles and steep in boiled water for 5-10 minutes. Great straight up, or with maple syrup and, to be honest, it is wildly delicious! We have been wild harvesting in Ontario and Quebec for decades and this tea is like bringing the restorative power of the forest home, in every cup.
