Raspberry Leaf Tea
We only use the highest quality luxury raspberry leaves in our tea. Picked at 600 feet above sea level in the Varna region of Bulgaria. Do not expect a fruity sweet cup, this tea has a wonderful herbal/grassy flavour with subtle raspberry sweet tartness. It has a totally unique depth of flavour, making it surprisingly moreish. Tea that we could see ourselves drinking every day.
Raspberry Leaf tea has been drunk for generations as a traditional, herbal remedy for all kinds of ailments. Most notably, it is said that drinking it during the final month of pregnancy can be beneficial and help ease the pain of childbirth. These days it is more commonly drunk for its deliciously light and refreshing flavour. There may, however, be some truth to the old claims.
Recent science has shown that 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. A real powerhouse of good stuff, all wrapped up in a warm and comforting, sippable package.
