Elderberries are a dark purple fruit that grow on the elder tree (Sambucus nigra). They have been used for centuries for their medicinal properties and are believed to have many health benefits.

The amount of herbal blend tea you should use can vary depending on the specific blend and your personal preferences. As a general rule of thumb, you can use approximately 1 to 2 teaspoons of herbal blend tea per cup of water. However, some blends may recommend using more or less tea per cup of water, so it's always a good idea to check the instructions on the packaging.

To prepare the tea, simply bring fresh water to a boil and pour it over the herbal blend tea. Let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on the specific blend and your desired strength. You can strain the tea and drink it hot or let it cool and drink it as a refreshing iced tea.

It's important to note that while herbal teas can provide a range of health benefits, they should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment. Always consult with a healthcare professional before using herbal blends or any other dietary supplements, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking medication.
