Recognized for its sweet fruits and pleasant tasting leaves, raspberry has been a cherished plant for hundreds of years. Native to many parts of Europe, North America, and western Asia, rubus idaeus is an easily cultivated member of the Rose family. Raspberry leaves are generally drunk as a delicious raspberry leaf tea, with a flavor that resembles black tea. Red raspberry leaf is also popular in herbal infusion blends for both its taste and healthful qualities.
Raspberry leaves are among the most pleasant tasting of all the herbal remedies, with a taste much like black tea, without the caffeine.
Red raspberry leaf has been used as a uterine tonic and general pregnancy tea for centuries. It can increase blood flow to the uterus and aid the uterine muscle fibers. Some believe it can alleviate pain during labor. Red raspberry leaf also can offer relief of nausea, increase in milk production, and increase in uterine tone. This tea is often used to relieve menstrual cramping and discomfort as well.
