Known in Japan as Kuwa no Ha Cha, mulberry leaf tea is a beverage enjoyed worldwide. The tradition of making tea from mulberry leaves originated in East Asia, particularly in Japan, where it is recognized for its delicious taste as well as incredible health benefits. It is regarded as a powerful natural remedy and has been used for hundreds of years, curing many different ailments. In China, it was very popular among emperors and it was considered to be very royal and exclusive.
The mulberry plant now grows all around the world and in different temperatures, but it is most widely found in China, Korea, Japan, Middle East, Northern Africa, and southern Europe. The plant actually originated in the East and was brought to Europe in the 17th century. People have been using every part of the mulberry tree which makes it an extremely useful plant. The fruit is edible and very tasty so it has been used to for hundreds of years to make jams, pies, and cakes. The leaves are used to make a delicious, healthy tea and the bare branches are cut and used to make baskets.
The leaves are harvested three or four times a year and carefully picked in order to get only the best leaves from the mulberry tree. They are then set out to dry in the sun, preserving as many nutrients as possible. The result is dry leaves which are not crushed or ground, keeping their natural form. The process of making this tea is actually not much different than of other more traditional teas and that is why it has such high quality.
An interesting fact about mulberry leaves is that they are not only important for making tea, they are also very crucial for ecology. They are the only food silkworms eat and thus are very important for the silk industry. We can actually thank silkworms for the mulberry plant being brought to Europe from Asia because it was done with the intention of cultivating them in order to make silk. Another interesting use of mulberry tree is paper production. In the ancient South Asian Empire the bark was used to make paper and as a result of that many books were produced, known as kraing.
The interesting history and use of the mulberry plant is what makes this tea so captivating, along with its distinctive taste and aroma. Drinking this tea can bring you back to fascinating times in history and spark your imagination.
