Ojibway Tea is currently being consumed throughout the United States, Canada Mexico, Europe, Australia, and Africa and is marketed under many different names...

Ojibway Tea History

The Ojibway

The Ojibway have been described as having knowledge of herbal healing and spiritual powers as extensive as any other Native American tribe. The medicine men gained their knowledge of plants in several ways. It came in the form of spiritual visions, intuition and thousands of years of observation. Observing the behavior of ill and injured animals, they learned which plants the animals consumed to heal themselves. From these sources as well as guidance from the Great Spirit, Kitche Manitou, they amassed a wealth of knowledge and passed it down from generation to generation.

The Ojibway believe that all plants, as creations of the Great Creator, express their own unique identity. They believe that each plant possesses an incorporeal being: a spiritual substance that gives it physical form, growth potential and power. They also believe that plants have another remarkable gift, the power to combine and become a single "unified spirit," much more powerful than any of the plants individually. They feel this "unified spirit" give the teas supernatural powers. Not coincidentally, many modern herbalists believe in the "synergy" of combined herbs in herbal teas, some "magical" quality emerging when blended together.

This is the herbal tea recipe of the Indian Medicine Man.
