 My Tea of the Moment - Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

Not Just a Pregnancy Tea - an Everyone Tea!

My tea of the moment is the red raspberry leaf tea. I stumbled across this tea in a moment of panic after a recent bout of what I call “bad belly” AKA “tummy bug”, and it settled my symptoms down within a couple of hours. I had always known Red Raspberry Leaf Tea to be the pregnancy tea, but as I discovered in my bad belly moment, this delightful brew had far more to offer with a greater range of benefits to a greater range of people than pregnant women!

[I want to establish something before going any further, red raspberry leaf tea IS NOT to be confused with the raspberry flavoured tea sold commercially – they are NOT the same.]

I have been a black tea consumer forever, but recently my body decided to reject caffeine. Initially, this meant bye-bye to coffee (yep, that was a RIP moment that took a lot of gritting of teeth as coffee and I were best buddies) and it wasn’t long before my relationship with black tea came to an end as well. I was happy to break the caffeine-relationship but I still wanted (needed) a hot drink, especially in the morning. It didn’t take long to find a host of great alternatives and now-a-days my cupboards bulge with an array of non-caffeine hot drink delights. My tea of the moment and special blend is a combo of green-tea and red raspberry leaf tea. I get just as many kicks from the anti-oxidant/nutrient/mineral/vitamin rich Deborah-blend as I did with caffeine AND with the bonus of feeling better. Indeed red raspberry leaf tea is not just a tea with a delightful taste it is a tea packed with benefits.

Nutrients of Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

Red raspberry leaves contain vitamins C, E, A, K, and B complex and are packed with essential minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, sulphur, and an easily absorbable form of calcium – 10 out of 10 to the red raspberry leaf!Health

Health Benefits of Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

Red raspberry leaf has been a natural remedy dating as far back as the 2nd century when it was used by the Romans for medicinal use for many aliments. It is a balanced food for everyone with or without ailments, at every stage of life, including pregnant women.  

Some of the health-benefits are:

+Soothes all manner of tummy ailments as it constricts the intestinal tissues providing relief in diarrhoea, upset stomach, cramps, nausea, vomiting, and inflammation of the intestines

+An effective herbal remedy for a sore throat, flu symptoms and gum diseases

+The astringent and antiseptic nature of the leaves helps to reduce inflammation and tightens the mucous membranes

+Detoxifies hormones in both men and women (as we can be bombarded with artificial oestrogens)

+The antiseptic properties makes it a great gargle for sore throats, a wash for wounds,  sores, as an eyewash

+Aides in the prevention of dehydration and lowers the level of blood sugar in diabetics

+Relief for uterine contractions during childbirth and for uterine haemorrhage

+Regulates menstrual cycle and aids against PMS and aids fertility

+Eases leg cramps and other spasms and helps with haemorrhoids

+Boosts testosterone and is a great overall tonic for men

+Assists in the production of breast milk

+Easing of morning sickness

+A great immune booster

+Lowers blood pressure

Brewing Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

Is dead simple! Red raspberry leaf tea is usually prepared by boiling about 1 cup of water and then adding almost 2 teaspoons of red raspberry leaves. If you are blessed with a nettle patch near you, use the fresh plant. Allow the leaves to steep for about 15 minutes until the infusion is a dark green colour approaching black. The taste is deep and rich and you can drink it straight-up or with a milk of your choice. The tea should be taken hot to derive all the red raspberry leaf tea benefits.

So, go grab yourself some leaves or a ready-made pack from the health-store and try this nutrient rich tea, combine it with other teas or drink straight-up. You will go back for more!
