Elderberry Tea

Elderberries are a great way to support your health and immune system.  These little berries are packed with antioxidants and nutrients, and are a great boost during the cold and flu season.

I generally buy organic dried elderberries online (on Amazon).

16 oz water

2 tablespoons organic dried elderberries

Honey, to taste (I prefer local honey)

Optional: spices (cinnamon, ginger, etc).


Heat the water, and simmer or steep the elderberries for about 15 minutes.

Press the berries and strain.

Add sweetener to taste, and any spices.

  1. I’ve heard great things about Elderberry but I can’t drink it. I’ve got an autoimmune disorder and take immunosuppressants. So I can’t take anything that ramps up my immune system.

  2. This sounds like it would be the perfect evening tea while winding down and you’re feeling under the weather or even great for breakfast to take advantage of the nutrients and antioxidants at the start of your day!

  3. This is great info to share. I’ve used elderberry as an antioxidant for years. Another tip beyond tea is to create an infusion for use in cocktails, or in the case of Dry January an alcohol-free drink.
