This is our solution for a tea that is crisp, sweet, and complex, steeping up bright pink, but without the addition of hibiscus that can be intensely tart. The elderberry forms the base of this flavor, dark and sweet. The cinnamon provides extra dimension and a longer aftertaste, while the rose gives the tea a crisp and refreshing quality. Hot, this is an excellent cold remedy, with the vitamin content of the elderberry, the cold fighting power of rose petals that is traditional in Chinese medicine, and the anti-inflammatory power of licorice. Cold, this is a wonderfully refreshing drink that is great iced with a quarter lime and raw sugar.
Ingredients: Elderberry, rose, cinnamon, licorice root.
