Our passion for raspberries has guided us along a path to research all parts of the raspberry plant.
In 2016 Lamponella® project began. It was Summer morning. While Mammo was looking at green and beautiful leaves on raspberry plants, he wondered how to use them.
“I’ve never loved studying, but sometimes doing research becomes fascinating: the potential of
raspberry leaves left me breathless and with little sleep”.
In that sleepless night, Mammo decided to create an innovative product with a strong personality… so it happened.
It is made exclusively with the leaves grown and harvested in the raspberry grove of our farm in Monti Cimini.
Here our raspberry plants grow in the open field shaded by centuries-old chestnut grove, in an environment with a high biodiversity rate.
Their leaves are gathered by hand while they are still growing and are immediately dried in our laboratory in Viterbo.
In this way, we are able to preserve their intense taste, flavor and aroma in their full expression and keep them until to the infusion.
We have enclosed the intense scent and delicate herbaceous flavor of fresh raspberry leaves in Lamponella® bottled with no paper labels, saving 100% of paper and about 90% of ink.
We can say: we discovered “Columbus egg”. In facts, raspberry leaf herbal tea has been known since ancient times as “Venus herbal tea” because the myth tells the goddess discovered raspberry in Mount Ida. That’s why the scientific name is Rubus Idaeus, “bramble from Mount Ida”.
But Lamponella® is not only made by the Sun and the Earth, by myth and history. It is the result of our research and our will, experience, determination and love for the job we have chosen to do.
Lamponella® is available sugar-free, slightly sweet and with stevia. These three Lamponella® are always ready to drink: cold in Summer, hot in Winter.
Drink Lamponella® all year long and all day.
The glass bottle allows you to cool down Lamponella® in the fridge or warm Lamponella® in microwave in less than a minute, after removing the cap.
