Horsetail is one of the ancient herbs of the world. In the days of the dinosaurs it is believed to have grown to the size of pine trees but is now very rare in that form. In the days of the settlers its tough stems were cinched together to make scouring pads, now only the tender young shoots are used for tea. Today it's known by many names: Shavegrass, Scouring Rush, Bottlebrush and Pewterwort. It makes an excellent tea and is known amoung herbalist as "natures scalpel".
