Red Blackberry Leaves

Red Blackberry LeavesThe best blackberry leaf tea is made of those red, burgundy & maroon leaves that usually appear later in the Fall after the blackberries have dried out.
Just look for healthy looking leaves, already mostly dried out.
The tea itself has a nice amber color and a sweeter taste than regular blackberry leaf tea. And if you pay attention to the Doctrine of Signatures, the red color is a good indicator that the leaves nourish the blood and support healthy blood circulation
Blackberry is a plant of the Dark Goddess, especially in this decaying phase.
