Blueberry Leaf (Vaccinium myrtillus) also known as European Blueberry and Bilberry is a low-growing shrub native to Europe and the British Isles. It is closely related to the American Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) sharing similar attributes and properties. Blueberry fruits are well-known and widely heralded for their deliciousness and nutritional value. European blueberry has long been rumored to support healthy eyesight - and there are stories that World War II pilots ate them to improve their night vision! Blueberry leaves share the nutritional benefits of their berry counterparts to an even higher degree. The leaves are many times higher in anti-oxidants and vitamin-C, making them a great addition to an immunity support regimen. Dried Blueberry leaf tea has a pleasantly green, grassy flavor that can be enjoyed on its own, or blended with other herbs for a daily boost!
