Elderberry. Its roots run deep in nature and tradition. Though in recent years (at least in the U.S.) it has become something of a lesser-known food, elderberry products of all types have been a staple in traditional and native cooking. The elderberry bush is native to North America, as it is throughout many parts of the world. It grows somewhat elusively in marginal lands that are often wet or borderline swampy. It thrives randomly on roadsides wherever it may. And it gives to us not one, but two nutritionally superior crops that make excellent jams, jellies, baked goods, syrups, toppings, wines, elixirs, and yes, TEA!
Both the elderflower (the blossom of the plant) and the elderberry are not only delicious tea base products, but they are nutritionally beneficial and superior to many other fruits and berries in many ways (in fact, many other foods in general). High in antioxidants and numerous beneficial compounds, elderberries and elderflowers are widely believed, with a body of evidence growing by the day to support the claims, to provide excellent immune support while also being capable of mitigating the symptoms, duration, and severity of colds and flus (among other health issues).
Thankfully, we are today once again seeing the whole benefits of the elderberry plant. We are once again remembering the earthy goodness and flavor of this dark, delicious berry. We are coming to understand its properties and benefits in ways that our ancestors knew without really knowing. We are searching out the science that proves that Grandma really did know best, and we are bringing this native, easy-growing plant back into the mainstream all over the world (though truth be told, across the globe many European and British cultures never lost sight or use of the elderberry at all—they grow an estimated 30,000 acres of elderberry to our 1,000 in the U.S.!).
From the jams and jellies of yesterday that many of us can still remember, to the more popular nutraceutical-based syrups and elderberry teas of today, Elderberry and its many easy health benefits are making their way back to us in forms new and old. Elderberry tea, in particular, is one product that has grown in popularity for many good reasons:
