(Rosa canina and Rosa Rubiginosa)
One of my favourites, with a tangy berry flavour. Rosehips is made from the his of the common Dogrose, with Rosa Rubiginosa being the Australian variety.
Rosehips are high in Iron, Copper, Vitamin P and Vitamin K, making useful for everyone, especially pregnant ladies. One cup of Rosehips tea will also provide your full daily allowance of Vitamin C.
A tonic for the adrenal glands and high in energy, Rosehips tea provides you with excellent support when you are feeling tired or stressed. It gives an equivalent boost as a cup of coffee, but is health enhancing rather than health depleting.
Try it hot in Winter either by itself or with some cinnamon or chilled in Summer with a slice or lemon.
Professional herbalists also use this in its concentrated form as an extract to achieve its many beneficial effects even faster.
