Flavor Profile

Raspberry leaf offers a mild and slightly astringent taste, with herbal and earthy notes that may hint at a delicate sweetness. Its flavor profile is often described as refreshing and subtly reminiscent of the fruit's character, but notably more herbaceous.

 

 

Appearance & Aroma

In the wild, raspberry leaves showcase a vibrant green hue, displaying distinctive serrated edges and a soft, velvety texture, emitting a fresh, herbal fragrance with subtle fruity undertones. When dried, raspberry leaves take on a muted green color and a crinkled texture, maintaining a faint herbal aroma with a hint of earthiness, while also preserving a touch of the fruit's sweetness in its scent.

 

Storage Tips
