Elderberry tea is a warm and soothing drink that helps ward off colds and flu. These inky purple berries from the Sambucus tree are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and immune-boosting compounds.
Elderberries contain antioxidants that shore up the immune system, and have been used for hundreds of years to fight colds and respiratory infections. They’re high in flavanoids, vitamin A, vitamin c, and dietary fiber, and can help reduce inflammation and provide pain relief. Many of those benefits are thanks to the anthocyanin, which gives the berries their deep purple color.
HOW TO MAKE ELDERBERRY TEA
Make this simple tea in minutes whenever you feel like your immune system can use a boost.
Combine: Add water, dried elderberries, and a cinnamon stick or a teaspoon of dried cloves to a small saucepan and stir well.
Boil: Heat on high just until the tea starts to boil. Then, turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.
Rest: Let the tea cool in the pot for 5 minutes.
Strain: Strain the tea through a fine-mesh strainer into a mug, add some fresh key lime or lemon juice, sweetener of your choice and enjoy.
