Tapped

How To Collect Birch Water

Birch water is the sap which is tapped from birch trees. Birch trees store vital minerals and vitamins in their roots. Every spring this water filters up through the trunk. The tree is then tapped and a little of the sap is collected. Its super tasty and doesnt harm the trees.

I flew over to Finland for a couple of day and wondered about in the trees capturing the amazing process of how to tap the trees. It was a beautiful.

We spoke to Anna who's been farming the trees for a really long time. She was lovely. I also got to drink som straight from the tree which was pretty awesome.
