From Traditional Medicinals

Organic Echinacea Elder supports the immune system* by stimulating immune cells. Our laboratory studies have shown that it significantly produces and activates immune cells. It’s a blend of sweet, fruity and slightly bitter herbal tastes with a characteristic tingle on your tongue caused by the alkylamides in echinacea, which is one of the important indicators of quality.

very yummy for a medicinal, herbal blend. tastes pretty much like mint! well today i’ve just been on a sipping rampage, and am apparently mortified of the idea of getting sick since i picked up a bunch of teas today, 2 of which were echinacea-based. the other one was Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Echinacea Complete Care (which tastes a bit of a disaster). are the claims of immune support true? who knows….most things are shooed away unless empirically tested/validated. not that i’d have it any other way, for we need such a rigorous vetting process in order to confirm a substance’s efficacy (or lack thereof). anyways…

i liked this one a lot. i don’t really get much in the way of elderberry, just mint with a slightly herbaceous edge.

the main ingredients are Echinacea purpurea & European elder flower, including their extracts/concentrates. the proprietary blend is comprised of organic ginger rhizome, chamomile flower, yarrow flower & peppermint leaf.

this had damn well better work.

Ok, I’m going to apologize for this in advance. This will make no sense. At first I was absolutely terrified about the steeping parameters (I did it for the full 15 min)… But it was not as horrible as I feared. It was actually REALLY GOOD! It’s fruity, but not. Strong, but not bitter. Smooth in fact. Inspite of the long steeping time, it’s not nearly as sweet as Twining’s Raspberry Echinacea… but not NEARLY as foul as Celestial Seasonings’ Echinacea. There’s just a touch of medicinal quality that’s more like a minty freshness. But yet not. Hm. I’m confused. I just just know I like it. The saying “the best things in life can’t be described in words” is definitely right. Yum.

I finished off my Echinacea Plus, and wanted to pick up a new box to help shake this cold/flu. They didn’t have the Plus, but they did have this Echinacea Elder.

It’s very good! It is tastier than the Plus, perhaps sweeter, and less overwhelming. We’ll see if it works!

This is a nice tea to help with a cold – it won’t cure it, but it’ll make you feel better for a bit. Steep the teabag for the full time (doesn’t hurt of you go over), but don’t drink more than 2-3 cups a day. The Elderflower in it will tend to loosen your bowels if you drink a lot of it.
