I am sincerely hoping that my local herb shop does not run out of dried elderberries because I will be drinking this bad boy ALL SUMMER LONG – and kats and kitties – summer lasts a LONG time in Central Texas.
I make a quart of this a day and I drink it all and then hold the jar upside down so every drop goes on my tongue. I do not share.
This combination of my very favorite tea blend, the much-beloved Golden Orchid, maple syrup and dried elderberries is just the smoothest most lovely and satisfying thirst quencher I can imagine.
The vanilla fudge bomb of the Golden Orchid with the concentrated fruit of the elderberries is already amazing and the maple syrup makes it hum. Perhaps I should note that I never drink sweetener in iced tea. Yes, I’m southern but I dislike sweet tea. This is so beyond tooth-achingly sweet Lipton. This is ambrosia.
