I'd like to order organic red raspberry leaf loose leaves tea ideally from a canadian source or from the US if shipping cost are low. Anyone have a reference ?

Have you tried Mountain Rose Herbs? It's been a favorite of Mothering staff and community for years.

I know this thread is super old, but thought I'd chime in just in case someone else is looking. Mountain Rose is *not* a good idea for Canadians, sadly. Unless you are really close to the border and able to set up a US P.O. Box. Shipping will take half your grocery budget for the next 3 months. Check your local health food store, and any local tea shops/houses. I have an herbalist friend in southern Ontario who often has a bit of a surplus she could sell/ship, but I bet if you just ask around, you'll find a local to you source. Try your farmer's market too, and just ask a few vendors. It's often a random connection. Our local soap maker, for example, has a huge herbal garden and is a wonderful source of herbs even though she markets herself not as a source for herbs but rather as a soap maker. In the past I've been able to get RRL through Frontier Co-ops, but they aren't really a "thing" on MDC anymore. However, if you get a few people together, you can run your own Frontier co-op. Anyway, don't spend the crazy money on Mountain Rose!

For greater things are yet to come...
