Labrador Tea with flowers
Labrador Tea - Rhododendron tomentosum - marsh rosemary - is a lovely Northern evergreen shrub/herb that has a unique savoury flavour that is often used with meats or as a tea. Labrador tea has mild narcotic properties that have lead it to be used for relaxation and as a medicine. Used to flavour anything from stews, and meats to gin or even add it in hot drinks. Only a few leaves (4-6) should be consumed at any one time. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should avoid consumption of Labrador tea.
