Goose Cove’s labrador tea


South of St Anthony’s lay what looked like a typical coastal fishing village. There was a trail over rocky terrain where a couple gazed at the sea where whales danced.

I climbed to the top. Down the other side I spotted Labrador tea bushes near the back of some buildings. This was a famous tea that people once drank as a number of women told me, “My mother used to drink that.”

I’ve read its good for stress and rheumatic aches and pains but unfortunately, it doesn’t have a great deal of flavour. However, I harvested the leaves and still add a little to other teas to take in its natural benefits.
