Mulberry Tea Morning

A friend gave me dried mulberry leaves that I could steep and drink last Monday (thank you, Carlis!!!), and I finally got to make my own pot this morning! Prior to this I didn't know anything about the tree, except that it produces berries that look a lot like cute, miniature grapes. Mulberries are amazingly full of nutrients. In fact, the Japanese have been brewing mulberry tea for years as a health drink. Some studies have also shown that the tea can lower your blood sugar levels, making it a potentially healthy drink for someone with diabetes (more info on that study here.

The tea was very good, not unlike the green tea that I usually have in the mornings. Will definitely be including this drink in my collection from now on. Now I only have to find myself a mulberry cutting so I can start growing my own tree!
