Each summer Laughing Lichen conducts a limited harvest of Black Currants. Currant bushes grow wild along the shaded shorelines and under the deciduous forest canopy. The fragrant spell of the currant plant is a pleasure. I usually smell this plant before I see it, and it always reminds me of hot, shady summers as a child growing up at my cabin in the NT. The wild currant bushes that grew along the lakes edge still grow there today and are just as vibrant and delicious. We first introduced this tea in the fall of 2016 after a bountiful harvest. By Christmas we had run out of the larger bags of tea. If the harvest for 2017 is just as plentiful then this tea will be available again in the 25 g bags in August.
This tea fresh and full of the flavour of freshly picked Currants.Wild Currants are not very common in our northern forests and it takes a dedicated stroll through the woods to find them. This Loose Wild Herbal Tea has limited availability so enjoy it while it lasts!
