Could you explain how yo make tea from Blackberries.
Thanks for your reply. I just want to clarify real quick. I can just pick the leaves from the blackberry bush and wash then steep in hot water.

Yesterday I made tea with Wild Strawberry leaves. I also made some from Raspberry leaves. It was pretty good. It looked like green tea. It'll be really good when I can add the ripened berries.
Does anyone else do this? Any suggestions?
Easy, plentiful, available all year, chock full of Vitamin C:
Pine Needle Tea.
Handful of pine needles, chop them up or not, pour in boiling water, steep for about 15 minutes.
Many of the early explorers died of scurvy in forests where this was all around them.

If you can grow Camellias, you can grow tea plants (Camellia sinensis). I have a lot of Camellias. No tea plants yet. Air layering works for propagating them.
