    it was other than the fact there is still knee deep snow in spots and i fell in a beaver hole, which was waist deep so i was wet and cold but it was worth it.

    If you never tasted Labrador tea, you should! Just take a leaf and chew it, it tastes something like a blend of spices with a little cinnamon I guess...it is the plant with the downward leaves and elongate, make sure they have a wooly, beige or suede-like underside of the leaf and there it is!
    This has to be the best comfort beverage you can make in the wild, a hot cup full of those leaves along with pine needles, hmmmmmmm!

    Amazing! Seeing Sarrs in the wild is something I definitely plan on doing sometime in my life. In the meantime, I really enjoy post like these.

    Thanks for sharing and watch out for those dang beaver holes next time.

    Oooo wild Sarracenia! That's cool. I wish I could find those. It's interesting that Sarracenia don't really make it west of the Rocky Mts...

    It should also be noted that, like anything, you should not consume it in excess because it can have potentially toxic effects if you drink too much of it. Also, Bog Laurel looks quite similar and is down-right poisonous. Make sure you know how to identify and also make sure you take it easy!

    Chewing on a leaf is pretty tasty, though. It's good stuff!
