Kwadacha Elders' Dune Tiyah Society have created their own tea venture from traditional plants grown within their region. Labrador Tea is one of the most well-known traditional teas in British Columbia.  Tii-Mastet is the traditional Kwadacha name for this tea.  

 

It has been a yearly tradition to gather these plants, traveling to mountainous areas within the traditional territory.  They picked, harvested and prepared the leaves to make this tea which was enjoyed by families on a daily basis.
