The raspberry plant (Rubus idaeus) is a species of the genus Rubus, a member of the rose family. It grows naturally throughout temperate regions, and is often identified by its bright red berries and thick, bramble like growing pattern. The leaves grow in sets of 5-7 serrated leaflets.
Raspberry leaves are high in polyphenols and flavonoids. Dried leaves are commonly used in teas and drink flavorings. Leaf extracts and tinctures are also commonly seen used in topical and medicinal applications.
