The fruits of the small perennial shrub, the bilberry, are very similar to
the blueberry bush of North America. Commonly referred to as the
"European blueberry", the bilberry has been used since
prehistoric times for a wide variety of health complaints. Studies on
animals and in vitro provide evidence for anti-bacterial,
anti-ulcer, and anti-spasmodic properties, among several therapeutic
actions tested and confirmed. Human trials, although more limited, suggest
that bilberry may improve night vision, cataracts, and other eye-related
disorders in test subjects. Further controlled testing is required, but
results so far are very promising.
Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
Leaves can produce symptoms of poisoning if used over long periods. The herb also lowers blood sugar levels, so diabetics who take insulin should avoid bilberry.
