Basic tea recipe from ehow.com and elaborated by yours truly. *Be very certain* the flowers you use for this recipe are not sprayed with pesticides and are the edible variety! We grow the European 'Black Lace' Elderberry with soft pale pink flowers. A visually striking plant! Experiment with other additions to the iced tea-don't limit yourself only to what I have suggested below. A note that elderberry is a unique, *acquired* taste for some.
