Antioxidant-rich, and an approved Commission E herb in Germany, the pleasant-tasting blackberry leaf deserves its place on any top-tier herbal tea list. Blackberry leaves have been found to be a rich source of chlorogenic acid, a compound that has been found to slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream after a meal. With a smooth, earthy taste, and a deep golden hue, incorporating Blackberry Leaf Tea into your daily routines makes living a healthy lifestyle just a bit more delightful.
Many people know the blackberry plant, or are at least familiar with the sumptuous black clustered berries they produce. These thorny brambles are a relative of roses, and are found in temperate regions all around the globe. Although these prickles make the blackberry brambles seem uninviting, the sweet, succulent taste of the blackberry is just the opposite, and these plants have been prized by civilizations throughout history. However, few people are aware that the fruit is not the only useful part of the blackberry plant. When harvested and dried, blackberry leaves make a gentle and soothing herbal tea.
