I want to make my own raspberry tea.
Just wondering when the best time to harvest is?
Is it better to bag the leaves to dry or use a dehydrator>
maricybele, I've always been told the best time to gather is right before they bloom same as blackberrys. But i've been trying to decide to take a chance and try picking some now.
When i dry mine i put them in small brown paper bags and keep them on the frig till they're dry(its also fairly dark there) if i have a lot of different leaves to dry i keep them in my pantry till dry. Some people may rather use a dehydrator.
Good luck with your tea and hope you enjoy it.
