Wintergreen for Tea...help!

swede1234(4)April 26, 2013

I used to get Wintergreen tea years ago at a co-op, & really loved it... but they discontinued it many years ago... also used to find it in the woods when I was a scoutmaster....I have never seen a place sell Wintergreen around here...

Got to really craving it again.... Thought it might be nice to grow it myself... where can I get seeds? I live here in Central MN... (Actually in a wooded area with lots of shade) Meanwhile, where can I purchase Wintergreen Tea? I notice that people grow Wintergreen for ground cover, but I just need a small amount for use for tea... Also notice some say Wintergreen is good for Arthritis... Any truth to that?

Thanks for any help!..
