Elderberry and blueberry are totally different plants...

They're completely different. As different as a blue bicycle, a blue teapot, and a blue windshield washer.
Blue cohosh, Caulophyllum thalictroides, is also known as squaw root or papoose root, a flowering plant in the Berberidaceae family. It is a medium-tall perennial with blue berry-like fruits and bluish-green foliage.
Blue elderberry, Sambucus cerulea or Sambucus nigra ssp. cerulea, is also known as blue elder, a coarse shrub species of elder in the family Adoxaceae.
Blueberry tea is not a literal tea but a tisane, an infusion made with parts of plants other than the tea leaf. In this case, it's blueberry.
