Elderberry Echinacea Immune Tea

Today I am excited to offer Earthwise Medicinal’s first tea blend: Elderberry Echinacea Immune Tea, now available in 4oz packages!  This tasty tea gently stimulates and supports the immune system and when steeped, turns a lovely deep-rose color.  Elderberry tea is delicious just about anytime.  This blend has a naturally sweet flavor and therefore requires no additional sweetener- making it a great choice for kids.  This tea can and should be steeped twice for added value (just pour another pot of boiling water over herbs a second time and steep for 10 minutes).  This is my go-to recipe whenever I feel slightly run down, a scratchy throat, or an oncoming cold.  Often when I use this tea in conjunction with miso soup, extra rest, raw garlic pesto, and facial steams with essential oils, I am able to fight off oncoming cold symptoms before they set in.  I hope you will enjoy this hand-crafted tea blend!

Ingredients:  elderberries, echinacea angustafolia root, orange peel, licorice root, ginger root

4oz package loose tea: $8

    How do I order it and how do I make it?

    • Hi Gayle, if you’d like to order a 4oz package of this yummy tea, you can email me your mailing address at earthwisemedicinals@gmail.com. I can ship it to you and bill you via paypal. To make it you’d need to order all the separate herbs and blend them up. The ratio is basically 2 parts elderberry, 1 and 1/2 parts echinacea, 3/4 part orange peel, 3/4 part licorice 1/2 part ginger. I hope you enjoy 🙂
