Product Description

Red raspberry leaf is used to make a tasty tea and is often combined with other tea herbs to give the beverages a more robust flavor. Raspberry contains tannins that give it an astringent flavor and make it a wonderful toning herb.

Botanical name

Rubus idaeus L.

Common name

Raspberry

Synonyms

Red raspberry, European raspberry, hoja de frambueso (Spanish)

The Plant

Red raspberry, black raspberry, blackberry, boysenberry, cloudberry, dewberry, thimbleberry and loganberry are just a few of the 250-plus members of the genus Rubus. Raspberry is a native of North America, Asia and Europe and is cultivated for its fruits throughout most of the temperate regions around the world. Although the berries have been harvested since prehistory (fruit fragments have been found in archeological digs at ancient village sites), cultivation did not begin until the Middle Ages. Raspberry has since gone through plant selection and hybridization to create numerous named varieties. Red raspberry canes have varying degrees of thorns and grow up to six feet tall. A patch of raspberry can become an impenetrable bramble if not kept in check by pruning. The leaves are toothed and medium green on the upper side, underneath, they are covered in fine hairs that give them a silvery look.

Quality

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%. The aroma of dried raspberry leave is faint and somewhat tea-like, the flavor is astringent and green, with a bitter finish.
