Sweet Fern

On the airstrip at the northern end of the island, there are sweet ferns growing abundantly. One day, our team leader picked enough to make a pot of tea. It was one of the few damp, rainy days we experienced there, and the tea was delicious - the first time I've ever had tea made from something freshly picked. Although I'm a coffee drinker in the morning, I started enjoying a cup of tea after dinner, even if it wasn't made from freshly picked sweet fern!
