Rosehips Tea Recipe
The beneficial compounds in rosehips are best extracted as a long-simmered tea, which is also known as a decoction. Once brewed, rosehip tea is floral, slightly tart, and delightful to sip.
Add the water and rosehips to a small pot or teapot.
Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes.
Strain out rosehips, sweeten if desired, and serve.
Note: As I mention in the safety section below, the seeds found in fresh rosehips and dried whole rosehips are covered in tiny hairs that irritate the mouth and throat. I recommend using deseeded dried rosehips in this recipe, but you can also use fresh or whole dried ones as long as you strain through a paper coffee filter before serving.
