Observations from Everyday Life
Mmm...I'm very intrigued. I don't believe I know that scent (or at least, I don't recognize what it is).
It's like wintergreen, but milder in my opinion. Actually, it might be in the wintergreen family (the leaves are green all winter.) It grows in the wild and when I was doing field work, it would always be a refreshing treat to chew on. Supposedly, it's called teaberry because the colonists used its berries to make tea during the tea embargo.
How interesting, about the colonists using the berries for tea. Have you ever tried that? I wonder what it would taste like. I remember Teaberry gum quite well. I miss some of my old favorites.
I haven't gotten around to it yet. Actually, I think about it and then forget. Maybe, I'll go see how many berries there are right now.
My dad loves teaberry ice cream. Sometimes you can find it at Weis.
What do you think?
