Rosehip Tea From Whole Rosehips
Add whole rosehips and water to a stainless steel pot.
Slowly bring the mixture up to a boil, and then reduce it to a simmer.
Allow the mixture to steep for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and add the spearmint/peppermint leaves or stevia, if desired, for sweetness.
Rosehip Tea From Ground Rosehips
If you follow this method, you will need to grind your dried rosehips in a spice mill or blender, and then sift the ground mixture through a sieve.
At that point, you can brew your tea with the resultant powder. Boil water and add the ground rosehip tea powder to it and let steep for 5 minutes.
