The next time you are feeling sick, reach for some of this tea and some Tofu Noodle Soup.
This tea is sweet, tart, and fruity. It has ginger root to add some spice.
It is a nice alternative to elderberry syrup, which I also keep on hand for when I feel something coming on.
What Does Elderberry Tea Taste Like?
This sweet Elderberry Tea tastes like berry candy in tea form! It gets its sweetness from maple syrup. If you don't want sweet tea, use less or skip it.
Made with dried elderberries and ginger root, it is healthy and satisfying.
- Dried Elderberries: You can find dried elderberries in the bulk section of many grocery stores or health food stores. You can also order dried elderberries online.
- Ginger: I used fresh ginger root. You could also use ground ginger. You'll use a lot less if you use ground ginger.
- Maple syrup: Adds sweetness. You could also use agave syrup, sugar, or your favorite sweetener.
