Brewing instructions
Description

Elderflower Tea is a type of Loose Leaf Herbal Tea. Though most often associated with cordial, serving it as a hot, nourishing brew is an equally excellent choice.

Why not discover for yourself today? The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company take pride in packing it fresh to order. This is our way of ensuring not only quality but also consistency, time and time again.

Why Drink Elderflower Tea?

Elderflowers (Sambucus) are a component of a genus of flowering plants belonging to the Adoxaceae family. The trees from where they derive grow across central Europe and North America - as well as, indeed, in the countryside surrounding our Pluckley-based company.

We use the Sambucus nigra variety, in particular, in the making of our Elderflower Herbal Tea. But why choose it?

What Does Elderflower Tea Taste Like?

Perhaps the primary reason that so many people buy Elderflower Tea is the fact that, put simply, it tastes exquisite. When brewed, its aroma is unmistakably sweet and floral - traits of which transcend upon the first sip.

An earthy finish ensures a complex yet delightful infusion that you’ll likely be making again in no time at all. And you can do just that when you order it online or in-store from us!

How Much Caffeine in Elderflower Tea?

However, you might well be wondering whether it’ll help you get out of bed in the morning. All types of “real” Tea (Black, Green, White and Oolong) contain caffeine, a stimulating chemical compound that famously provides an energy boost.

Our Elderflower Tea isn’t “Tea” in the conventional sense, though, and as such is 100% void of caffeine. This is good news for some.

How to Make Elderflower Tea

1, Add Loose Leaf Tea to a Tea Infuser or Filter.

2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.

3, Put the kettle on and, once boiled, pour it over the leaves.

4, Allow it to steep for 5-10 minutes.

How to Serve: Consider adding lemon for a bittersweet balance or even Peppermint Tea for extra flavour. Alternatively, serve it without additions to fully appreciate its natural character.

Elderflower Tea Health Benefits

What is Elderflower Tea good for? In the days of ages past, people believed that planting Elder trees around houses prevented lightning strikes.

Such was its supposed power that those who cut down the trees risked the vengeance of supernatural forces. We now, of course, worry less about the mysticism around Elderflowers and more about the science of their health benefits.

Boost Immunity with This Tea

A 2009 study published in the Online Journal of Pharmacology and PharmacoKinetics looked into Elderflower Tea Benefits that can effects on the flu.

The participants involved, all of whom had three or more flu symptoms, received either four 175-mg doses of Elderflower extract or a placebo daily. The conclusion was that 60% of the herb group had significantly reduced symptoms.

  10. The magic herbs. I've purchased this tea and some others teas (Sage, Liquorice, Eldelflower, Sideritis) to treat my dry cough. And this mixture of different herbs works just magically for treating hay fever symptoms like itchy eyes, sneezing and constant nasal drip from which my husband suffers every summer. Now he can enjoy playing with kids outdoor without taking useless antihistamines drugs.
