About Blackcurrant Leaves
Blackcurrant leaves come from the woody shrub of the same name, which in turn belongs to the Grossulariaceae family. Best known for its berries, this plant mostly grows in temperate areas of central and northern Europe, as well as parts of Asia. It prefers damp, fertile soils, often found near woodland, and can reach heights of up to 1.5 metres.
All parts of the Blackcurrant (Ribes nigrum) plant are strongly aromatic. This includes the leaves, which are alternate, simple, and grow to be 3-5 centimetres broad and long.
Siberians have long drunk a type of Herbal Tea using these leaves. Meanwhile, we have added Black Tea to create an infusion unlike any other. Why not try it for yourself? You won’t be disappointed.
