REVERED BERRIES TEA | WHOLE BERRY LOOSE HERBAL TEA

$3600

Fruity, jammy, whole-berry loose herbal tea

The Story

This berry-focused tea was inspired by Ava's research into adaptogenic herbs (such as the schisandra berry in this tea) that enhance immunity against colds, flu, bronchial infections, and sinus congestion. She set out to create a tea that would be fruity and delicious, effective, and safe for long-term use by children and adults alike. Elderberries were the first ingredient chosen for this tea, because while many people find elderberry syrups or tinctures effective for preventing colds and flu, we found that a number of them would prefer elderberry supplements without sugar or alcohol. We boil our recently harvested, dried, carefully stored elderberries for 15 to 20 minutes to fully extract their medicinal properties, and then add other immunity-supporting berries including schisandra berries, goji berries, and rosehips to make the tea even tastier and more effective.

Properties

This four-berry tea is an immunity-building, strengthening, and slightly warming tea for the winter season, for recovery from illness, and for frail or weak constitutions prone to catching cold and flu. The tea contains elderberries, known for their anti-infectious and antiviral properties; adaptogenic schisandra berries, which promote physical stamina, stress resistance, and a calm demeanor; goji berries, which protect the liver and promote longevity, and flavonoid-rich rosehips, which counter winter blues.

Taste

Fruity, jammy, and slightly tart; a sweet and sour full-berry flavor.

How to use

Measure out 2 tablespoons of the berry tea blend, add 2 cups filtered water, cover, and bring to a boil. Simmer on very low heat, covered, for 20 minutes. Strain and enjoy throughout the day, 2 cups per day per person. Reserve the berries for a second brew. On the same or the next day, add 2 cups filtered water, bring to a boil, and simmer, covered, a second time for 20 minutes for a second batch of tea from the same berries. Drink hot or warm.
