As the leaves fall from the trees and the cooler months set in, we are looking to warming teas with added immune-boosting properties to see us through the seasonal changes.

Rich in colour, full of flavour, and bursting with natural Vitamin C, our Elderberry Boost tea is a perfect seasonal blend, containing Elderberry, Hibiscus, Rosehip, Tulsi, and Baobab.
Elderberry and Tulsi are well known for their immune system supporting properties, Rosehips have a long and traditional reputation for having a rich Vitamin C content which is essential for health, and Baobab is a valuable source of vitamins and minerals. Hibiscus has many traditional uses, and is naturally acidic with a great flavour, aroma and colour - the perfect complimentary ingredient for this blend.
Our FairWild Elderberries come from the east of Poland, on the fringes of the Bialowieza Forest, a UNESCO world heritage site. The forest is one of the last and largest remaining parts of an immense primeval forest that once stretched across the European Plain and is still home to European Bison. The collectors in this region have a long history of gathering wild herbs, often using them for their own medicinal uses. Collectors receive a social premium on the sales of the crops, to support them and their communities. FairWild status also ensures that the plants and their habitats are protected through sustainable harvesting according to internationally recognised standards.
