Essiac tea originated in the early 1920s when a Canadian
nurse named Rene Caisse (essiac is Caisse spelled backwards) received the
formula from a patient who acquired the recipe from an Ojibwa medicine man. She
went on to use the essiac tea formula for many years with positive results.
Nurse Caisse passed away in 1978, but her essiac tea recipe remains to be
appreciated by all who use it.
Trout Lake Farm began manufacturing Camas Prairie Tea in
1994. At the time of its conception it was known as Caisse’s Herbal Tea.
Although this new venture was a departure from Trout Lake Farm’s roots in
farming & supplying raw materials, we felt that it was important to introduce a
reasonably-priced but high-quality alternative to the more expensive essiac
products in the marketplace. Three of the ingredients — Burdock, Sheep Sorrel
and Rhubarb — were already being grown on our farm. We sourced the Slippery Elm
which is the fourth ingredient, designed our simple packaging and were ready to
find our niche in the market.
Many years later, the demand for Camas Prairie Tea
essiac Blend continues to grow, and we are pleased to offer this valuable
Camas Prairie Tea essiac Blend contains only 100%
Organic Certified & Kosher Certified ingredients. Trout Lake Farm is proud to
maintain the highest quality standards from Field to Finish.
