Black Elder Berry Iced Tea

Black Tea Blended with Elder Berries.
Sometime ago I did a bit of research on what properties of what products would help the general wellness of my family. At that time I discovered the Elder Berry. It had properties that discourage the well being of the virus. I believe it has a negative impact on the ability of a virus to reproduce which is good news if you are suffering with one!! 

Black Elder Berries.
There was an Israeli doctor who did research and even formulated a syrup that is currently available at health food store and drug store alike using the Elder Berry.

I ordered several pounds of the kosher dried Elder Berries and use them. 

Steeping Tea and Berries.
Currently I make a very pleasant iced tea using black tea and a couple of tablespoonfuls of the dry berries. For a half gallon of tea I use 4 family size black tea bags and 2 rounded tablespoons of Elder Berries. I add 2 cups of water in a small pan and bring it all to a boil. Strain through a sieve and add 2 quarts of water and honey or sugar to taste as desired.

It is delicious and quite enjoyable as well as a healthful beverage.

Thank you!! My best friend's husband is hooked on it as a hot tea beverage too, they mix with black tea and steep in a traditional pot. It is quite good either way!!
