interesting hub. I like reading hubs like this. I read somewhere last week that you can dry the leaves from raspberry bushes in the spring and save them for tea. I'm going to try that next year.

It grows in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. But there aren't as many species of it in North America. That's why it's best to order the supplies online or through a catalog. Some stores will carry the supplement though.
