As you’ve likely guessed, an elderberry hibiscus herbal blend is based on two botanicals: elderberry and hibiscus. Elderberry is one of the most commonly used medicinal plants in the world and is found across several sub-species of the Sambucus tree. The most commonly used elderberry is the slightly sweet variety native to southern Ontario, eastern North America and Europe.
Elderberries are known for their sweet-tart taste. They’re packed with antioxidants, have been informally said to shorten the misery of a flu and to have vascular and immunity benefits. In addition to tea, elderberries are commonly used in jams, juice and even wine.
Hibiscus is a floral known for its tart cranberry-like flavour. It too is high in antioxidants and has been known to help lower blood pressure, even promote weight loss. Because of its tart nature, a cup of hibiscus tea would need some sweetener. It’s a real lip smacker.
A good Organic Elderberry Hibiscus is a must for anyone’s tea collection. Look for a blend that’s been amplified with sweet fruit like grape skins to add just that little bit more sweetness to the tart mix. Any way you look at it, Elderberry Hibiscus is a tea with a welcome fruitiness and a million uses. This is one herbal that works hard for the money!
