drank Elder Berry by Cheryl's Herbs
4653 tasting notes

i figured i would have a cup of this tonight since it’s not really tea. Not to mention that my allergies are acting up AND the last thing i want is to get sick next week before vacation. Terri sent this my way and i haven’t had a chance to try it yet. On the whole this isn’t a bad cup of…drink? haha it’s got a sweet taste to it but with a bit of zing that makes me smile. If there is any truth to the medicinal properties, i could drink this all the time! :)

A bit of St. Germaine, elder flower liqueur, might add a little more smile and make you forget about your allergies :)
That stuff is really good in floral and berry teas!

Sil

Huh. Ill have to try that since funnily enough there IS a bottle of that in my house!

Elderberry may not do alot for allergies, I’ll have to send you some Nettles for that. BUT Elderberry is an awesome remedy for colds & flu, it really does work!

Chelle

It does! I like the taste of the thick elderberry syrup that I get at Whole Foods.

I brew it fairly strong, at least 1 Tb to my mug, sometimes stronger, for 5 min or so. Sometimes I sweeten it, usually I don’t.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
