Raspberry/Blackberry leaf tea

Pick only the young, fresh looking new leaves.

Wash and then bruise the leaves with a rolling pin.

Store in an airtight container for 3-6 weeks to ‘ferment’

Lay the leaves out in a single layer to dry somewhere warm until crunchy.

Crumble the leaves into small pieces and store somewhere dry.

To make a tea, add 1 teaspoon per cup of hot water. Strain before drinking.
