Raspberry leaf tea has been used for centuries as a folk medicine to treat various medical conditions. Raspberry leaf is very rich in many vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C, E, B, phosphorus, and potassium as well as in phytonutrients.

To make Raspberry leaf tea, take 28 grams of Raspberry leaves. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and add Raspberry leaves. Let steep for 10 minutes.
