Elderberry Tea Recipes

  This site was designed with two purposes in mind:

  1. To bring you a variety of flavorful elderberry tea recipes, including elderflower teas
  2. To help you locate the products you need to know where to buy elderberry tea ingredients

Making your own delicious homemade elderberry teas is something enjoyable you can do at home. It is also the best way to be able to control your own ingredients and know exactly what is (and is not!) in your cup of tea. This is important because the ingredients you use will actually be steeping in boiling water, steeping out everything that is naturally in your berries, spices, and herbs, and anything that might have been cast or sprayed or otherwise added during the growing and processing process. It is up to you to decide the most important ingredient and buying characteristics of those ingredients, but the best way for you to ensure your end product is one that is comfortable to you in terms of ethics and growing is to buy the ingredients and mix your teas yourself. 

What’s more, when you make your own elderberry tea, you get to decide what flavors are in it (or not!). Don’t like a particular spice called for in a recipe? Don’t use it! Want a little more of a favorite flavor? Add more! Mixing your own loose-leaf tea is a great way to create exactly the flavor you like best. Choose from one of our many elderberry tea recipes or elderflower tea recipes. We’ve carefully mixed and matched and experimented to bring you a wide variety of perfected tea mixes to use just as they are listed here. But we’re not offended if you want to do a little mix-and-match experimentation of your own once you’re comfortable with making your own teas. In fact, we encourage it! (And we’d love to hear all about it—drop us a line!
