  • 1 part dried elderberries
  • 1 part dried hibiscus flowers
  • 1/2 part dried ginger
  • 1/2 part cinnamon chips
  • 1/2 part dried rosehips


  • In a large glass jar, add all ingredients. Cap and shake vigorously to evenly mix the herbs.
  • Store in a cool, dark place.

When ready to drink

  • Steep 1-2 tablespoons per cup of tea. Add honey for more sweetness, if desired.


  • To make a stronger tea, lightly blitz the herbs in a blender. This increases the surface area of the herbs, which makes them more potent.
  • What does it mean to have a recipe in "parts"?
    • Measuring in parts makes it easy to make a recipe as big or small as you'd like, and it's common to use with herbal blends like this. Start with picking a measurement to equal one part. For example, you could say 1 part = 1 cup. That means 1/2 part = 1/2 cup, and 1/4 cup = 1/4 cup.
