Labrador Tea prepared as a hot beverage, has been used traditionally for many years to treat common colds, respiratory, kidney infections, cough, sore throat, diarrhea and headaches (No Medical Claims).

The following is taken from Food First NL:

"To make tea, do not boil the leaves as this releases the harmful alkaloid andromedotoxin” (Scott, 2010). Steep the leaves instead


Labrador Tea (hot)

About 30 Labrador tea leaves per teacup or mug

Boil water. Remove water from heat and let sit 1 minute. Pour water over tea leaves and let steep 5-10 minutes according to your preference for tea strength. Remove leaves from tea. Flavour with honey or lemon as desired.

Iced Blueberry Labrador Tea

8 cups of brewed Labrador tea

2 cups blueberries (fresh or thawed)

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup water

1 tablespoon lemon juice

In a large saucepan, bring blueberries and water to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until blueberries break down, about 5 minutes. Add blueberries to the brewed Labrador tea. Add brown sugar to the blueberry tea mixture; stir and then let cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours. Strain mixture through a cheesecloth-lined sieve into a pitcher. Stir in lemon juice. Serve over ice cubes

Leaves can be used to season meat & fish dishes.
