A naturally caffeine-free fruit and flower blend, this herbal tisane has a refreshingly sweet, tart flavor. The body is zesty and thick. The liquor is very thirst quenching, but not overly sweet. The berry flavor lingers on the palette.
Hibiscus adds a tart dimension to the blend which makes it very refreshing. The currants give the tea distinctive characteristics: black currants for fruitiness and red currants for a zing of tangy flavor. Finally, the added raisins lend a sweetness that is further enhanced by natural flavoring.
Elderberry Elation can be enjoyed hot or iced and sweetened to taste. For a summertime drink, this tisane is hard to beat as a refreshing beverage, or pour it into popsicle forms and freeze lightly-sweetened Elderberry Elation for a frozen treat.
