Gently nurturing and a friend of women.
Supports healthy menstruation, tones the uterus and may be used for menstrual cramps.*
Reason to Love
Of course, the delectable fruit of Rubus idaeus is a well-known and well-loved summer treat, but it’s the raspberry leaf you’ll find in this tea. With a silvery under leaf that is reminiscent of the moon’s glow, European and Native American women have used raspberry leaf for thousands of years for menstrual support, menstrual cramps and during pregnancy as a healthy tonic to help prepare the womb for childbirth.* We love this tea for its gently nurturing properties, and its robust taste, which is reminiscent of a delicate and mildly fruity black tea.
Full-bodied, like a fine black tea (without the caffeine!).
What’s in your cup?
A prolific plant that does well in temperate environments, some of our favorite raspberry leaf grows wild and is gathered by hand in the Gorazde collection region of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Gathered by a group of collector families, the young leaves are best when hand-picked in early summer before the fruits develop. Sustainable wild collection represents an important source of income for these families who live on small plots of land nestled amongst the gorgeous rolling hills and meadows of the region.
