What is an Elderberry?
Elderberry is the dark purple berry from the European elder tree. Elderberries have been used for centuries due to their numerous health benefits. Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, they are known to boost the immune system and promote overall well-being.
Beyond the medicinal and therapeutic purposes, cooked elderberries are also used for making tea, wine, pies, and jams.
The tart yet sweet flavor of elderberries adds a delightful twist to this Wild Elderberry Tea.
What does Elderberry Tea Taste Like?
Are you a bold tea lover? Reminiscent of a dry elderberry wine, this full-bodied loose Elderberry tea is for you! The tartness of the hibiscus and elderberries is harmoniously balanced with the sweetness of apple pieces and raspberries. The lemongrass adds a zesty kick, leaving a refreshing aftertaste.
Hibiscus and rose hips provide a tangy and floral note, while echinacea adds a hint of earthiness. The blue cornflowers not only enhance the visual appeal of the tea but also add a delicate floral undertone.
If you're not feeling quite so bold, give it a quicker steep or blend in some white tea. Elderberry Hibiscus tea is also delicious with a cinnamon stick, or a few slices of ginger. Add some raw honey for sweetness if desired. Enjoyable as an iced tea as well.
