Raspberry leaf tea is made from the leaves of the red raspberry plant. Although it doesn't share the same tanginess of its fruit, as a tea the flavour of raspberry leaf is not too different from a green tea.
Quite pleasant, with a fairly light earthy taste to it, it can be drunk either hot, or as an iced tea.
Ingredients: Loose raspberry leaf tea.
How to brew:
Use one teaspoon of leaves per mug, or per person, if you are using a teapot. Add boiling water at 100°C and let the raspberry leaves steep for 4-6 minutes. Strain the leaves and drink. Sweeten with sugar or honey to taste.
Some people like to add dried fruit such as cranberries or lemon to their raspberry leaf tea, whereas others prefer to add mint – if that’s something you’d like to try, why not head over to our custom blending option and create your own special blend!
