Do you have Blackberry Leaf in your cupboard? If you
dislike most herb teas but need to avoid caffeine, try it! Blackberry Leaf tastes similar to
black tea because of its tannin content with a hint of added sweetness.
It has been traditionally used for a variety of medicinal purposes --
probably because of the tannin and vitamin C content -- but is most
commonly used in commercial herb tea blends for its taste. It plays well with others... use it to add a deeper tea-like note to fruity or floral combinations.
