Red Raspberry Leaf is used to make flavorful, tangy tea and is often combined with other tea herbs to give the beverages a more robust flavor. Red raspberry leaves contain tannins that give it an astringent flavor and make it a wonderful toning herb. Use red raspberry leaf in DIY herbal body care products, as well. Our organic bulk red raspberry leaf is kosher certified and non-irradiated.
Product Features: Raspberry leaves are green with a silver-gray underside. The tiny hairs, responsible for the lighter-colored appearance of the undersides of the leaves, cause the cut leaves to cling together and form clumps. Leaf petioles (stems) are present and may have small thorns. Plants stems should not be present at greater than 5 percent.
Directions: To prepare as a tea, pour 8 ounces boiling water over 1 to 2 teaspoons of herb. Cover and steep for 5 to 10 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
Suggested uses: Use as a tea, alone or with other tea herbs. Use in DIY herbal body care products.
