Raspberry Leaf Tea

This is a quick one.  I just learned that raspberry leaves make good tea.

Pick the leaves, dry them in a low oven, and store in an airtight jar.

To serve, steep in hot water for 4 minutes, as you would any other tea, and strain.

I'm not good at describing the subtlties and complexities of something like tea.  To me, raspberry leaf tea tastes a bit like green tea...

It's good.


  1. Is somebody pregnant? Because raspberry tea totes tones the uterus. It's recommended both pre-natal and post-partum.

  2. I did some reading up on this as I thought there were contraindications for drinking raspberry leaf tea when pregnant but the articles I googled say otherwise. Also indicates it is supposed to increase fertility in men and women so be careful with that unless you are planning to give me a grandchild. (Not that I would object.)
