Relaxing Elderflower Tea

This week's recipe in the spotlight uses the award winning Elderflower Concentrate by Tasmania's Ashbolt Farm. With all the exciting new products coming onto the market, countdowns to the Taste of Sydney festival and Easter consuming us at Gershgoods, the Relaxing Elderflower Tea recipe is just what we need to relax at the end of the day and calm our busy minds.

The Elderflower has many health advantages, traditionally used as an aid against respiratory illnesses such as asthma, colds and influenza, skin purification and general detoxification. 

Ashbolt Farm's Elderflower Concentrate has been entered into 4 consecutive Wrest Point Fine Food Awards (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009) and won Gold Medals in each year and a National Champion Award.

Stunning as a winter morning’s de-tox, or great before bed for a relaxing night’s sleep.

ASHBOLT Elderflower Concentrate
Hot water
Lemon or Ginger as desired

Step 1 - For those who like fresh ginger, pour boiling water over grated or thinly sliced ginger in a plunger pot or a cup, allow to cool a moment or two (to maximise the herbal benefits of the elderflower) and then add ASHBOLT elderflower concentrate and perhaps a slice of lemon / lime to the cup.
Step 2 - NOTE: Some people add Elderflower concentrate to ‘freshen’ the flavour of fruit-based tea bags and to extend the concentrate a little further.
Step 3 - Add gin or vodka, if desired, for a relaxing toddy.
