Hello everybody and welcome back for or look at one of the more popular herbal blends of late. I am talking about lemon and elderflower tea. Elderflower tea is becoming very popular because of its health benefits but its flavor is not for everyone, so adding a little lemon to it really makes it more appealing for just about everyone.

What Is Lemon And Elderflower Tea? Elderflower Lemon Tea is a herbal infusion that uses elderflower as its base and then adds a lemon flavor to the blend to create a citrusy floral-herbal infusion. There are many different ways to achieve the lemon flavor in this blend, from lemon peel to lemongrass they all can be used to add lemon flavor to your elderflower tea.
Let’s dive in and take a look at exactly what makes this wonderful herbal blend tick. We’ll look at the overall flavor profile as well as answer some of the most popular questions about this herbal tea.
What Does Lemon Elderflower Tea Taste Like?
Elderflower tea is really the base for this herbal infusion so it stands to reason that we start there for our flavor profile. Elderflower tea is a floral-herbal infusion so you get a mild flower flavor as your base. Elderflower is much more subtle in its flavor than some other floral flavors, rose and lavender are two great examples of a much more potent floral infusion.
While it is subtle it does have some distinct flavors that come through. Elderflower is a bit earthy and slightly bitter but not overwhelmingly so. It also has a bit of a medicinal flavor to it that is common in many other flower herbal infusions.
Overall it is a subtle flavor profile that really benefits from the addition of a citrusy flavor like lemon to really make it as drinkable as possible.
The lemon adds a wonderful citrus note to the elderflower tea. The potency of the citrus flavor really depends on how you decide to add that lemon flavor. For a more subtle lemon flavor add lemon peel or lemongrass to the elderflower leave before you steep the tea.
Adding lemon juice or a lemon wedge after steeping your tea will add a much more pronounced citrus flavor. If you add too much you can easily overwhelm the delicate flavor of the elderflower tea. Just something to be aware of when making a cup.
You can also add a variety of other citrus flavors to get a similar-tasting tea. Orange peel or lime are great options if you prefer those flavors over lemon.
