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. 
  • You can add the spearmint/peppermint leaves or stevia, if desired, for sweetness. Enjoy your rosehip tea!
