In a large saucepan add elderberries and 3 cups water.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer.
Simmer for 30-40 minutes or until liquid reduces by half.
Use a masher and mash the berries.
Strain into a large bowl. Set aside.
Heat remaining water and add tea bags. *, see note here*
Steep tea for 10-15 minutes and add to elderberry mixture.
Once cooled slightly, stir in honey, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice (if using) until honey is well incorporated.
Taste and add more honey or lemon to suit your taste.
Pour into a jar and store in the fridge for up to 3 months. ( I've kept it longer though. Freeze if you're nervous about longevity )
Take 1 tablespoon daily or at the sign of a cold. Take 2-3 times a day once a cold has set in.
