NOTE: Bilberry tea should be avoided during pregnancy, while lactating and cautiously with children. The tea should be drunk in moderation. Because the natural chemicals in bilberries could alter medications, discuss its use with a doctor.
Because studies suggest bilberries may improve learning and memory in older adults, fight off certain bacteria, and reduce symptoms of ulcerative colitis, there are delicious ways to add them to the diet. They have a similar yet slightly more intense flavor than blueberries. Beyond drinking as tea, they can be eaten fresh or dried, on their own, or as part of any recipe that might include blueberries.
