Blackberry leaves enter the small circle of winner in this this cancer fighting category. The tea itself is really good to fight free radicals, and as such it is advisable to drink this tea on a daily basis.

- Pour the water in a pan and take it to boiling point (when there are small bubble inside the pot, it the time to turn the knob off) – small bubble and not bubbling boiling water.
- Pour a spoon or two of tea inside the water (tbs). This depends if you like strong or weak tea. I like it weak, so 1 tbs for me.
- If you buy teabags, then just use one teabag. That should be enough for a mug.
- Now, cover and wait for 7 to 12 minutes for the tea to infuse. This is where the tea releases its substance. Strain the tea if you did not use teabags.
