Are you a bold tea lover? This full-bodied Wild Elderberry tea is for you! Reminiscent of a dry elderberry wine, the grape and cranberry notes create a tart, but sweet flavor. And as a caffeine-free tisane, it is great for sipping at any time of day or night. If you're not feeling quite so bold, give it a quicker steep or blend in some white tea.
What is an Elderberry?
Elderberry is the dark purple berry from the European elder tree. These berries are used for medicinal and therapeutic purposes, but cooked elderberries are also used for making tea, wine, pies, and jams.
Elderberry Tea Benefits
For over a thousand years, herbalists have researched the health benefits of elderberry. They are still studying the extent of elderberry tea benefits such as the ability to help reduce inflammation, relieve stress, and protect heart health.
Each year when we face cold and flu season, it's good to remember that this herbal tea is a natural remedy. We've made it even more potent by blending in echinacea, another well-known immunity-boosting herbal remedy.
Elderberries are rich in flavonoids and antioxidants that help your body absorb vitamin C, the vitamin essential for immune function. Elderberry and echinacea tea is packed with vitamins A, C, and B, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and zinc to help boost your immune system and ease cold and flu symptoms. There are also studies that show Elderberry herbal tea can also help with collagen synthesis.
Try steeping with a cinnamon stick, or a few slices of ginger for a truly delicious cup of tea. Add some raw honey for sweetness if desired. Enjoyable as an iced tea as well.

Light, not too heavy on the hibiscus, we love that!. All the mixture of fruit, herbs, elderberries, and lemongrass is delicious. Thoughtful with ingredients. A healthy, refreshing hot tea, especially good. Highly recommend.
