About Elderberries, and the Elder Tree...
The Elder is a legendary tree, considered magical and sacred in folklore and myths. Some herb manuals refer to it as the medicine chest of the country people.
The Elder Tree produces creamy-white flowers in late spring which give way to bunches of juicy, purplish black berries in early autumn. Birds love Elderberries and will eat entire crops if given the opportunity, so harvesting must be done quickly.
Today, Elderberries are prized for making juice, pies, desserts and, of course, they make a great fruity tea, hot or cold.

- Good water is an essential part of brewing a great cup of tea. We recommend using spring or filtered water.
- Be sure to relax! Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the calmness and ritual that surrounds it.
- If you desire a medicinal tea: This herb has a tough cellular structure and some heat is required to release all of its medicinal properties and flavor. Use one tea bag per cup of hot water in a stainless steel or glass pot, cover, boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. This is known as the decoction method. Extra tea can be kept in a covered glass jar for a day or two in the refrigerator.
- If you desire a pleasant tea or quick brew, use one teabag per cup of hot water. Pour boiling water over teabag, cover, and let steep 5 to 7 minutes to taste. Enjoy!

iHerb Customer Reviews
Taste is pretty good, fragrant and fruity. I only let mine steep 2 min but later read the box and say to steep 5-10 min or longer for decoction so I will try and see if the stronger tea tastes better without bitterness. Will probably save this for the winter to prevent flu as it's really rich in vitamin C. There's a disclaimer sticker on it about stained tea bags due to tea coloring (red when you press it, yellow in the cup) but my tea bags were their regular off-white color as usual.
Not only is this elderberry tea delicious, but also it's packed with health benefits. Rich in vitamins C, A, B vitamins (vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folic and pantothenic acids), iron, pota ssium, calcium, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, zinc, selenium, amino acids, tannins, antioxidants, flavonoids, it's great for treating colds, flu, bronchitis, tonsillitis, streptococcus infections, sinus pain, sciatica, neuralgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, gout, rheumatism, migraines, dizziness, asthma, gingivitis, canker sores and gum disease, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, as well as other conditions. Elderberry is a powerful immunostimulant and anti-inflammatory agent boosting the immune system, fighting infection, attacking yeast and fungi directly, facilitating healing, reducing inflammation, relieving pain and swelling of the mucous membranes, soothing and healing dry and damaged skin. A tea bag can also be applied topically to reduce skin irritation and inflammation, heal wounds, abscesses, sores, insect bites, scars, bruises, cuts, boils, burns and rashes. An elderberry facial mask or scrub improves the complexion, brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness and small lines, helps break down old scar tissue and prevent premature aging. I love this tea and would recommend it to anyone wanting to boost their immune system and improve their overall health and well-being.
