No tasting notes? I guess this one is that boring, huh?

I’m not feeling well, so I’m drinking cup upon cup of this with a bit of honey. I’ve always liked plain raspberry leaf as a “wellness” tea – it re-infuses decently, you can steep the crap out of it, and it’s so light that a little bag of it goes a long way. I bought this from Teaopia way back when, and it still seems fine – not stale or anything. Admittedly, it looks like grass clippings, and how do you know if grass clippings have lost a lot of flavour? Still, I’ve been told that raspberry leaf keeps very well, and it seems to taste about the same to me!

It’s kind of bland, I guess, but if you’re drinking nothing but this, it seems tastier after a while. I’m guessing that’s because the memory of more exciting teas simply fades from your mind.

…No, seriously, this is very simple and comforting to drink. Very hydrating as well! Yesterday was the first Saturday in a while that I didn’t go home from work with a dehydration headache. (Yes, I know, that’s really stupid when you work in a liquid store, but weekends are usually so busy that I don’t get a chance to drink much as it is, and then I usually end up drinking something with a lot of caffeine and sugar, so that doesn’t help.)

Even given how light it is, I still appear to have used up at least 25 of my original 50 grams. I really need to find where to buy plain raspberry leaf loose now, because I don’t want to give this up, and I don’t want to resort to raspberry leaf TEA BAGS! /snob

(It needs to be a place that takes Paypal…anyone know of one?)

I should note that this is awesome to just put in the cup and sip through a bombilla as well, and just keep topping up the cup until it’s tasteless to get the most goodness from the leaves. A bit of a pain to clean, but hey. No pain, no gain.

Edit: Oh yes, and I got a huuuge haul from DT the other day that I’m excited about! I should have time in the next couple of days to try some saaamples!

After posting this, it suddenly occurred to me that the Banff Tea Co. nearby might have some, and they do! And they accept Paypal! But 100g is the minimum purchase, oh dear. That’s so much leaf…

If there’s a whole foods or other health food store or co-op near you, they may sell raspberry leaf in bulk with other medicinal herbs.

Yep, I found some in a local organic health food store, but only in bags. I really can’t imagine the leaf would even be as effective in bags…? Maybe I’m wrong. I think shipping from Banff might be cheaper (and they also have a asthma tea I’d like to try), but I really don’t know that I need that much.
