The organic elderberry tea is a unique recipe mixing fruits, flowers and herbs. The black elder (sambucus nigra) is very popular in winter. Indeed, the berries and flowers of black elder are known for their effect on fever and their benefits on respiratory infections. This natural remedy is sometimes used in phytotherapy with echinacea (for its antiviral action) or cinnamon bark. In our recipe, black elder (sambucus nigra) is associated with other ingredients that fight against fever (meadowsweet) or against winter respiratory infections (rose hip, carrot, lemon myrtle, berberis root, rose petals and mallow). The infusion with elderberry flowers and berries also includes calming or sedative plants such as lemon balm, verbena leaves or chamomile flowers. Its use is therefore mainly in the evening.
