Infusions made from the leaves of raspberry bushes, (Latin: Rubus idaeus) have been consumed for millenia for reasons ranging from the soothing of throat infections to easing leg cramps. Botanical archaeology indicates that raspberries originated in what is now Central Europe - in fact, not far from Lublin, Poland where we have sourced our offering. From there it is believed that the plants were carried either in seed or seedling form, by ancient migrants across the Baring Land Mass, the strip of land that used to join Alaska and Russia thousands of years ago.

 As the population of North America grew over time, the hardy raspberry bush came to grow wild throughout the continent. Archaeologists studying the ancient cultures of North America discovered evidence that the women of the ancient Cherokee, Iroquois, and Mohawk nations took advantage of the plant's abundance and regularly consuming it during pregnancy. They believed that drinking raspberry leaf tea helped to ease discomfort during childbirth. In fact, these ancient peoples believed that the Raspberry bush was a gift from the Great Spirit, put on earth to aid in the propagation of the human race.

Recent science indicates that there may be some truth to the ancients' claim since raspberry leaves contain fragrine, an alkaloid that helps tone the pelvis and uterus. Raspberry leaf also contains high quantities of Vitamins A, B Complex, C, and E, as well as many essential minerals, and high levels of tannin. In order to ensure the high vitamin and mineral content, our suppliers harvest the leaves of the raspberry plant in summer before the berries ripen and flavonoid levels are high. The leaves are then dried and processed in a method similar to that of regular tea. Comparisons can also be drawn between the he robust, full-bodied flavor of raspberry leaf tea, and that of traditional black tea. Brew a pot today and see why raspberry leaf makes an excellent caffeine free alternative to the morning cuppa! Alternatively, our raspberry leaf can be used as a decorative flourish to blended teas.


 

Hot Tea Brewing Method


Place 1 teaspoon of herbal tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into the teapot (for a more intense flavour, add a little more tea). Pour boiling water into the pot and let it steep for 5-7 minutes. Pour into your cup and drink.

Add milk or sugar to taste, acceptable to drink ‘straight up.’

Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup.

Try brewing the mix for a second time. Some people like to add a little honey.

 

Iced Tea Brewing Method


Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a general rule of thumb is to double the amount used. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.

Alternatively, you can place the tea in a jug and add cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
 

For a terrific taste, add some honey, cinnamon and fresh raspberries!

 
NOTE:  Raspberry leaf tea is commonly recommended in the latter part of pregnancy but if using medically please talk to your doctor or midwife first.
