Nettle rightly deserves to be called the most versatile of our wild vegetables. It is Finnish superfood at its best.
Spruce sprouts are deliciously bitter, bright green, young tips of spruce trees that are found on the end of the branches in spring time. Spruce sprouts are increasingly popular year by year, especially in the Nordic countries, and for good reason.
In honor of the wild herb season starting, we have agreed juicy product campaigns with our resellers.
Wild herbs can be enjoyed in many forms and ways. One easy way to get into wild herbs is learning how to use them for making delicious and healthy herbal tea mixes. Wild herbs have different strengths and uses and can be mixed in ways that serve your need; introducing functional herbal teas.
One of our favourite wild herb is the spruce sprout, our main ingredient in our novelty Forest Defence Herbal Tea. Nutrient-rich spruce sprout tastes fresh and brings a tangy, citrus like flavour that works nicely with sweet stuff. Why not combine it with the best, raw, naked, organic honey there is in Finland?
Snowy cold winters, pristine nature, the northern lights: this is what Hong Kong people quite often know about Finland.
