Wintergreen belongs to the Ericaceae family, a trait is shares with the blueberry plant. It is also a term once used to refer to plants that retain their green color during the winter months, which has been replaced by the word “evergreen.”

Also known as Eastern Teaberry, wintergreen leaf provides the fresh, minty flavoring for mouthwash, toothpaste, chewing gum and hard candies.

Wintergreen leaf is also very popular in tea blends, a practice that started with early Americans when true tea from Camellia sinensis was often difficult to obtain.

American wintergreen is a sprawling shrub in the heath family that inhabits the woodlands of eastern North America. It is noted for its glossy, evergreen leaves and bright red berries that provide color contrast for us and food for pheasant, deer and other wildlife in winter.

The dried leaf is suitable for a refreshing tea, a fact discovered during the Revolutionary War when black tea became scarce. Wintergreen leaf can also be infused in a carrier oil for use in skin salves, balms, lotions and creams.
