Drinking my daily cup of Elderberry. I went by Cheryl’s yesterday to restock, & I have to say, this is the best Elderberry I’ve ever had!! Although the berries are dried, they have a juicy fruitiness to the aroma & taste, I feel like I’m Anne of Greene Gables, drinking a cordial. The brew is rich, sweet, & thick with flavor, & I think I’m gonna have to buy a lb of these this year!
It’s a rare treat when ‘medicine’ tastes so good that I look forward to my next cup!

Dang Terri, if we ever do a swap I am requesting some of this! :D

Terri HarpLady

If you ever want a swap, I’m in! Otherwise, I’ll toss some into the next box I send to Sil for you :)

Stevia, bleh

Starfevre

Wait, am I looking at the right one? Is it under herbs because none of these are named Elderberry.

Starfevre

Is it just some of the dried elderberries under the herb section and not the tea section?

Sil

yes it’s under herbs….just dried elderberries. :) brews up really nicely heh but it’s not a “tea”

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, just the straight Elderberries in the herb section.

If you order any, tell them Terry HarpLady sent you, LOL.
Of course, they know me as Terri the Harp Player, but I’m sure they’ll figure out the connection.

Indigobloom

Sweet!! yes Terri we should swap! :P

Sil

I had totally forgotten I had elderberry lozenges stashed away. They actually taste pretty good.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
