Paul and I have been drinking -- and loving -- this tea so much I decided to add it to my Etsy shop. Elderberry is a traditional approach for dealing with colds and flu. It seems to be great for supporting the immune system to do its work. To that I add Rosehips (for its Vitamin C content), Licorice (also for immune support and sweetness), Star Anise (famous as an antiviral key ingredient in Tamiflu, also DELICIOUS), and Cinnamon (for its tasty warming effects). It has so many healthful qualities, but, honestly, once you taste it, you'll want to drink it just because of that!
