Celebration Herbals Herbal Tea Caffeine Free Elderberries Description
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 are followed by bunches of purplish black juicy berries in early autumn. Birds love Elderberries so they must be collected before they find them. The berries are prized for making juice, pies, desserts and of course, they make a great fruity tea, hot or cold.
The herbs have been harvested from wild (uncultivated) areas and randomly harvested to ensure natural species regeneration.
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 surround 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 flavour. 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 pleasure tea or quick brew, use one teabag per cup of hot water. Pour boiling water over teabags, cover, and let steep 5 to 7 minutes to taste. Enjoy!
