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 teaspoon 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 teaspoons 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 leaves. 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].

After a long night shift at the hospital, my long distance vision was so poor that I was scared to drive home. I also seem to suffer from nightblindness. Over the years, many of my doctor friends have recommended that I use Bilberry for my sight problems. I never listened to them. Finally, about a year ago, I decided I would try Bilberry. After using Bilberry for 3 weeks, I experinced a noticable improvement in my distance and night vision. After one year of use, my opthalmologist agreed that the improvement in my vision was fundamental and permanent enough that a change was required in my glasses prescription. I can now drive home confidently and safely at night.

no need for glasses
I have been using Bilberry Leaf Tea (loose) for a few years. I started with your product when I had night vision issues. I could not drive my car at night because of my inability to see clearly. After using your product for two months, my night vision cleared up. For the past year, I have no need for glasses. I love your tea.
