Hershel’s Gift (Organic Elderberry Mint Herbal Tea)

Hershel’s Gift has been around for so long that it is hard to process that there was a time when I did not have it easily to hand for sickness – whether it was for me or for someone close to me.

I’ve jested 1for years that I would feel more comfortable if everyone I cared about had ready access to this tea.

It has actually been around for so long that it started with one of the boring names, progressed to being called Elderberry Elixir, and then finally became Hershel’s Gift due to my shock at a television show doing something right in the herbal realm – as well as becoming a salute to a character lost to a show’s plot roulette.

I have an ongoing love of elderberries and need very little excuse to put them in a tea – for reasons of both taste and their myriad health benefits.2

They pair exceptionally well with the other herbs in this tea, making it a pleasure to drink – and a comfort, too, once it has become part of the “I feel like garbage and would like it to stop” regimen.

The image focuses on the edge of a small white bowl full of a blend of elderberries, yarrow flowers, and peppermint. The herbal blend stacks up over the edge, and the ingredients are clearly visible in colour and texture. Behind the bowl, a bit blurred due to the focus being on the tea, is a label with a bird and the words "Hershel's Gift"Now for the basics:

  1. Mostly a jest? Sort of not.
  2. At one point I had an amazing elderberry syrup, given as a gift, and it gave me a glorious additional reason to ask for special treat pancakes.
