Luscious Blackberries have been enjoyed by humans for over 2000 years. In the Rubus genus of the Rosaceae family, this healthy fruit is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins. Blackberries are grown in many places and are particularly plentiful in the British Isles and Western Europe as well as in Eastern and North Western America.
These whole dried blackberries are a beautiful addition to teas. They can also be reconstituted. To reconstitute, use hot water and soak berries for approximately an hour. If cold water is used, soak the berries for 3-4 hours or overnight.
