CANADIAN EASTERN WHITE PINE TEA

With all of the benefits of Suramin derived from pine needles, we needed to build our immune systems. We wanted to share the opportunity of these benefits with everyone since we have Canadian White Pine in our own back yard!

We Practice Sustainable Harvesting
To sustainably harvest, we gather our needles from trees that are earmarked for cutting down by our local arborist.

The History of Pine Needle Tea
Historically, the Native Americans, particularly the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois), considered White Pine Trees the “Tree of Peace.” Knowledge of its healing properties eventually garnered the attention of Eurocentric science and research, including its abundance in Vitamin C.

Which Pine is Best?
Don't be fooled by imitations. Eastern White Pine naturally grows in very few places in the world.Are all Pine Needles safe for Tea? The simple answer is no; they’re not. This is because some varieties contain harmful toxins. Serving any of these as a Loose Herbal Tea can lead to adverse side effects. It is therefore best to buy Eastern White Pine Needle Tea that has been safely sourced, including from us.
