Greenland Tea, also known as Labrador Tea, is a medium-sized shrub widely distributed in North America, stretching from coast to coast. It crosses the Rocky Mountains to the west coast and extends from Alaska to the tundra of the Low Arctic. Preferring peaty, acidic and marshy soils, it is often found in less humid places such as mounds, woodlands or semi-woods.

It is frequently associated with Black Spruce. This resinous shrub has thick, alternate and evergreen leaves, with white flowers grouped in the shape of an umbrella, overtaken by young shoots in spring. The underside of the Lédon leaves is characterized by the presence of white or orange woolly hairs.

Labrador Tea, or Greenland Tea, was a wild tea widely used by Native American, Inuit and American explorers of the time. In times of shortage of imported tea, it was often substituted for traditional tea.

The Hudson Bay Crees used it as a healing agent by chewing the leaves and applying the paste obtained to wounds, particularly for the cracked nipples of nursing women or burns. Native American women consumed an infusion three times a day to facilitate childbirth.

Leaf powder, effective against headaches due to its analgesic properties, was also applied directly to babies' irritated skin in combination with fish oil. Even today, the Labrador tea remains one of the plants with therapeutic virtues the most important for the First Nations of North America.
