Elderberry Blossom Iced Tea (W/Optional Additions)

Recipe by COOKGIRl
READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 6 cups




  • Pick fresh elder flowers from an elderberry tree. Remove the blooms from the stems and discard stems.
  • Place 2 to 4 fresh elder flowers in a heatproof bowl. (I tested this recipe using 3 stems of elderflowers and 6 cups of water).
  • Boil the water.
  • Pour the boiled water over the flowers to cover.
  • Cover the bowl and allow the flowers to steep for about 10 minutes.
  • Strain the tea and set aside to cool then refrigerate until well chilled. (Can also be served hot.).
  • To serve, pour the chilled tea over ice cubes. Stir in your favorite additions.
  • I floated a few of the individual blossoms on top of the tea.
