Fireweed Tea. Also known as Ivan Chai, Kapor Tea, and Rosebay-Willowherb, it is one of the oldest forms of oxidized tea dating back to the 12th century Russia. It was widely favored and exported to Europe centuries before the production of Chinese black tea. Alaska Natives have long harvested the plant for food and many other medicinal uses.
