This fragrant herb, also known as Elderberry Flower, has been found in stone and bronze age excavations and was used extensively by the ancient Greeks.
The Elder tree produces creamy-white flowers in late spring which are followed by bunches of purplish black juicy berries in early autumn.
Because of traditional Native American uses and its continued use today, Elder Flower is also known as the medicine chest of the country people. We hope you enjoy this wonderful tea.
