Homestead Blend is ON SALE NOW! when you buy boxes of 16 tea bags.
Named for the wild, pastured land of old homestead sites in south Algonquin where these herbs are picked, and the pioneers who enjoyed these delicious summer herbs and flowers for fighting colds, fevers and flu.
Our Homestead Blend is smooth and delicious with lemon and honey. Brewing too hot will evaporate the delicate anise flavours and aroma. Wonderful iced.

For hot brewing, steep for two-and-a-half to three minutes. Use for three or more infusions, as desired. 180–185°F / 82–85°C
