Red raspberry leaves are known for their astringent properties and can be used as an antiseptic. In herbology, red raspberry leaf tea is praised as an herb for women’s’ health, with benefits ranging from helping to increase fertility, tonifying the uterus of an expectant mother and helping to relieve the strength of contractions, to helping to relieve PMS symptoms.
PLEASE NOTE: The use of red raspberry leaf tea during early pregnancy (first trimester) is not recommended by physicians due to its ability to cause uterine contractions, increasing the risk of miscarriage.
To prepare as a tea: For the most therapeutic effect, we recommend making a decoction. Put 1 tbsp of tea in a small sauce pan. Cover the tea with 1 cup of water. Slowly heat to a simmer (be careful not to boil), cover for 10-30 minutes, then strain. You can initially put the tea in a tea strainer or filter, or put them straight into the pot and strain the tea afterwards. Can also be prepared as an infusion: Fill tea strainer or filter with 1 tbsp tea and place in a mug. Pour boiling water over tea until mug is full. Cover and steep 10-15 minutes; however, the effects might be less than that of a decoction.
