Strawberry Leaf Tea
Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Strawberry Leaf Tea is a little-known Herbal Tea with much to offer. While not nearly as famous as the fruit of the same name, it has a lovely herbaceous flavour and well-documented health benefits.
Those wishing to be adventurous couldn’t ask for a better brew. We pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory, nestled in the stunning vistas of the Kentish countryside.
Botany and History of Strawberry Loose Leaf Tea
The strawberry plant (Fragaria x ananassa) is a hybrid species of the Fragaria genus. Its wild counterparts have existed for millennia. However, the garden strawberry was first cultivated in Brittany, France, in the mid-18th century.
Most people will be more than familiar with the fruit it produces. The leaves have only started to become popular in recent years following extensive research into their benefits.
Does Strawberry Leaf Tea Have Caffeine?
When you make a cup of Green Tea, say, or Fresh Coffee, you’re getting a relative amount of caffeine in your infusion. This stimulating chemical compound famously provides an energy boost upon consumption.
Yet, none exists in Strawberry Leaf Tea. What you have here, in other words, is a 100% caffeine-free Tea - perfect for anyone wanting to cut down their intake.
Strawberry Leaf Tea Nutritional Value
Strawberry Leaf Tea properties include Vitamins C and K, iron and ellagic acid, to name but a few. Most of these and others serve as antioxidants in the body, which will be discussed further below.
The bottom line is that it is as beneficial to your health and wellbeing as it is delicious to your taste buds. Perhaps best of all, the fact that we pack it fresh to order ensures its quality and consistency.

Strawberry Leaf Tea Benefits
One of the most common Strawberry Leaf Tea uses is for boosted immunity. Its high levels of Vitamin C can provide support to your body against invading bacteria and viruses. Then there are its antioxidants, which combat free radicals.
This ultimately reduces the risk of developing a multitude of chronic conditions from cardiovascular disease to type-2 diabetes.
Strawberry Leaf Tea Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
Expecting mothers have long consumed Raspberry Leaf Tea during the third trimester for its reported ability to induce labour. Do Strawberry Leaf Tea benefits in pregnancy have the same effect?
Few studies exist to make a case either for or against. There is also a lack of evidence to suggest that it boosts milk production in nursing women. We therefore advise caution on both counts.
