White Mulberry Leaf Tea
What is White Mulberry Leaf Tea?
White mulberry leaf is probably best known as the traditional food of silk worms. However, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has also used White Mulberry Leaf Tea for over 400 years. In TCM the leaves of the white mulberry tree (called Sang ye in Chinese) is considered a cooling blood tonic and believed to benefit both the liver and lung energy meridians.
The White Mulberry tree (in Latin Morus alba) grows widely throughout Asia. This tree grows very fast as was also introduced widely in the USA during colonial times. Initially introduced in order to support schemes for domestic silk production, when this project failed, the tree was promoted as hog feed. Today many lucky people have these beautiful trees in their yards or nearby parks. One of the largest trees in New York's Central Park is a White Mulberry.
What are the health benefits of White Mulberry Leaf Tea (aka. Morus alba Tea)?
Chinese doctors most often recommend Mulberry leaf tea as a diabetes tea. However, Traditional Chinese Medicine also recommends White Mulberry leaf tea as an aid for a number of conditions including anemia, dry constipation, prematurely graying hair or baldness. It is also commonly drank to counter the symptoms of the common cold or flu including, sore throat, headache and cough.
Modern research into the benefits of White Mulberry Leaf Tea is sadly lacking. There are studies that support the idea that White Mulberry Leaf Tea may be helpful in managing blood sugar. Mulberry leaves contain a substance called Moranaline that may inhibit the some of the stomach enzymes responsible for processing fats and sugars. If true, this would result in fewer fats and sugars being absorbed into the blood stream. Bear in mind, there have been no large scale studies of Mulberry leaf for this purpose but the traditional uses combined with the available research is encouraging.
Why is our Mulberry Leaf Tea is the best?
We grow our mulberry trees on small farms in the highlands of Thailand. We grow it there because there is very little industrialization in this region. The air, water and soil are some of the best in the world and together they produce a very high quality White Mulberry Leaf Tea. Because we work directly with the farmers we can insist on natural pesticide-free growing methods. We pan dry immediately and then follow with a forced air drying method that allows us to preserve the integrity of the tea. Our mulberry tea is slightly sweet with an earthy taste reminiscent of maple leaves.
We urge you to give our Muberry Leaf Tea a try. Its fully pesticide-free and caffeine free!
