So, what does it taste like?


The wild, versatile flower, boasts a sophisticated flavour profile, weaving together floral notes with hints of pear, lychee, and tropical nuances. It’s great with lemon, or honey, or even lime. Paired with Nettle it is a superfood powerhouse, and its appeal extends beyond the palate. Elderflower has a rich history of medicinal use dating back to Roman times, with documented benefits for sinus issues, colds, flu, cough, and laryngitis.


How do we harvest our elderflowers?


Once picked and washed, the harvested elderflower blooms are dehydrated at 50 degrees for 17 hours. Producing cute delicate, golden flowers. If the blossoms rustle when they are moved, it means they are fully dried, and can be blended for teas. We combine the dried elderflowers to various other natural ingredients to make bold, high-quality, and flavourful brews.
