The wild strawberry is a member of the rose family and is known scientifically as Fragaria Virginiana. It is also sometimes known as the Wood Strawberry because of its propensity for growing throughout many of North America’s forests. But they don’t stop there - wild strawberries grow just about anywhere. The creeping plant can be found in fields, lawns, streamsides, riverbanks, even roadside ditches. They grow in clusters up to about 6 inches tall and usually bloom from April to June depending on how far north you are. Once their berries set, the plants lie dormant during the hot summer months. As for their flavor, although they’re a bit smaller than their commercially available counterparts, wild strawberries are generally considered to be more full bodied. North American Natives believed the small red fruit to have many traditional and therapeutic uses.
The sweet and fruity taste of these delicate strawberries receives a pleasantly spicy character from the best known and most often used spice: pepper. With a big dash of milk, this tea turns into a wonderful, refreshing strawberry-flavored milk! The infusion is dark, deep and sweet. Excellent iced.
