Rosehips are noted for their high concentrations of vitamin A, C, E and K. A cup of rosehips is apparently as full of vitamin C as 140 oranges and there is still a big amount in a cup of rosehip tea.
Rosehips are fruity, aromatic, sour and pleasant tasting.
How to brew: bruise the rosehips slight in a mortar and pestle, then infuse for 5 minutes.
Rosehips can soothe sore throats and ward off colds, may nourish the blood and reproductive system and strengthen the heart and brain.
Steenbergs rose hips are loose herbal tea.
