11/29/16 We found the Wintergreen Teaberry in an area with very small shrubs and thorn bushes. I could smell the rain and the mint from the wintergreen. It was very cold so some water was frozen and I could hear the rain drops on the ground. I was surprised by what I found because my partner and I were looking everywhere for anything with berries until we looked down and there it was - what we were waiting for. It had four leaves with one little berry in the middle. The stem of the leaves were red.
I know its a wintergreen because the leaves were 2 to 5 cm long with waxy looking leaves. And it smelled like mint.
