Information: Blackberry is a member of the Rosacea family. It is something of a classic fruit whose aroma and fragrance is captured in this delightful tea. The most common as well as being the most vigorous growing is the Himalayan Blackberry. Were you also aware that most species of wild blackberry provide a natural source of cover and food for birds as well as some mammals? Not only this, but the Himalayan Blackberry is considered a weed! Not all blackberry leaves are deciduous, many remain evergreen and the vines have a tendency to smoother other plant growth. A Himalayan blackberry can be distinguished from other varieties by its five distinctive leaflets. The California blackberry, on the other hand, has only three leaflets. The wild blackberry plant can live up to 25 years or more. On the West Coast, blackberries are also known as ‘trailing berries’ or ‘dewberries. Enjoy the delicious character of blackberries in this exemplary tea.
