Wintergreen herbal tea
Although wintergreen is not related to tea, this plant holds its own with a light and sweet taste, even minty! Wintergreen has been used for millennia for its pain reducing analgesic effects.
Natural Akua forest tea leaves are sustainably hand picked in the Nitassinan territory and carefully packaged using eco-responsible materials.
Ancestral remedy against fever, pain and rheumatism, wintergreen has been sought after for millennia by indigenous populations for its anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, antispasmodic and pain-relieving properties. Indeed, its leaves have a high content of methyl salicylate, a recognized active compound similar to aspirin! It is also a great antioxidant source.
Gaultheria procumbens – Pileumin
