I experimented with making fir tree infusion soon after moving to the great Northwest over 20 years ago. To ensure the freshest flavor, you have to pick the very tips of the fir branches – the bright, yellow-green baby shoots. How nice that Juniper Ridge has done the work for you. Their Douglas Fir Tea is a great way to try out this delicate brew with its unique, forest fresh taste. Theirs is one source I trust to bring the real deal to your cup. Wildcrafted and packaged in a tin containing 20 unbleached bags (online price $12), I love that 10% of profits goes to protecting the wilderness. They’ve also introduced a White Sage & Mint combining the pungent aroma of sage with refreshing mint. Note: The “Mt. Hood Breakfast” gift set which includes Douglas Fir Tea, Huckleberry Jam and a very cool tin camping mug, is the perfect gift for a walk on the wild side!
