Tasty Teas #3: Elderberry

Elderberries are wonderful.  So rich in vitamin C.  We drink this "tasty tea" to ward off a cold or flu.  You can drink it when you start to feel a bug coming on, or when you're in the thick of it .  It helps build immunity and repair your health.  Instead of steeping these little berries, you want to make a decoction.  

Put a tablespoon of berries in a medium size pot , cover with two inches of water, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.  

The result is this beautiful magenta colored tea. 

Add a spoonful of honey and you are on the mend!  The kiddos will love it too!
