Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Mulberry Leaf Tea is a Herbal Tea for the mind, body and soul. It has long played a role in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) due to its incredible health benefits. There is also, of course, the fact that its taste is, put simply, exquisite.
We take pride in packing it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory. In doing so, we can guarantee not only quality but also consistency with every cuppa brewed.
Mulberry Leaf Tea Nutrition Facts and Botany
Mulberry Leaf Tea comes from the Mulberry Tree (Morus), which in turn belongs to the Moraceae family. There are sixteen known species of it found in warm, subtropical and temperate climates around the world.
We use the Morus nigra (Black Mulberry) variety in the making of our Mulberry Leaf Tea, one that, when brewed, goes above and beyond to impress all drinkers.
TCM first recognised the health benefits of this infusion in an ancient book entitled “Huang Di Ba Shi Yi Nan Jing” or “Yellow Emperor’s Canon on Eighty-One Difficult Issues''.
We now know that it contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, and C, Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), Deoxynojirimycin (DNJ), Phytosterol, Quercetin, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron and Zinc.
What Does Mulberry Leaf Tea Taste Like?
There is still the question of what you can expect from its flavour. Mulberry Leaf Tea has a rich, alluring aroma - traits of which transcend in taste.
You can expect refreshingly grassy, herbaceous notes with every sip, followed by subtle but unmistakably sweet undertones. It is a true delight from beginning to end. But will it help you get out of bed in the morning?
Mulberry Leaf Tea Caffeine
The one thing absent - which, depending on your perspective, could be a good thing - is caffeine. This stimulating chemical compound famously provides an energy boost upon consumption.
Having too much, however, can lead to side effects and health concerns. If you’re looking to cut down your intake, then, deciding to buy Mulberry Leaf Tea might be the answer.

Mulberry Leaf Tea Benefits
Would you believe that this beverage contains six times more calcium than Green Tea, 25 times more than milk and 40 times more than cabbage?
It also has 2.5 times more iron than Green Tea and ten times more than spinach. Some consider Mulberry Leaf Tea a diuretic, meaning it might enable someone to excrete excess water, thereby reducing high blood pressure and swollen tissue.
Mulberry Leaf Tea for Diabetes
And the above is only the start of its potential. One study published in the Saudi Journal of Biological Sciences suggests that it might help those living with type-2 diabetes.
The research saw 48 diabetes patients split into two groups. The first group received Tea from the Camellia sinensis plant, while the second group had Mulberry Leaf Tea. It concluded that the latter was more efficient at acting as a support.
