Native people used more than 1000 plant species.
Labrador Tea (Ledum groelandicum) is one of them, (and despite its name, we harvest it in the Gaspé Peninsula !)
This medium-sized shrub (30 to 120 cm) is found mainly in a boreal or arctic climate.
Only the last leaves are harvested by hand.
The infusion of a few leaves develops a mix of various aromas such as resin, mint, tarragon and grapefruit.
You can reuse the leaves a second time!
You can also prepare a marinade made with Labrador tea and soak your game meat in it…
