Easy Elderberry Tea
Elderberry tea is a immune-boosting tea that helps to ward off colds and flu. If you need a little boost, sip this easy-to-make tea all winter long. Watch how I make it in the video above!
Servings: 1 servings
- 2 cups water
- 2 tbsp dried elderberries
- 1 cinnamon stick
Combine all ingredients in a small pot. You'll notice the berries instantly start releasing their color.
Heat the pot over high heat. When the tea just starts to boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
Once the tea is finished simmering, turn off the heat and let it rest for 5 minutes.
Strain the tea through a fine-mesh strainer into a glass and enjoy!
- This is the brand of organic dried elderberries I buy. And it's usually enough to last the entire cold and flu season!
- The elderberry tea gets deeper and darker in color the longer you boil it. If you prefer a lighter colored tea, just reduce the time on the stove by 5 minutes.
