Hip hip hooray for rose hips! Also known by their botanical name rosa canina, rose hips are the vibrant red-orange fruits of the rose plant. Related to the apple family, they have a unique flavor akin to tart apples or plums. These fragrant hips are most commonly used for making herbal tea, although they can also be used in jams, jellies, and wine. Delicate and aromatic, rose hips are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, which offer numerous benefits for the skin and immune system.
How to Make Rose Hip Tea
To make rose hip tea, first boil water in a kettle. Place a handful of rose hips into the boiling water and allow to steep uncovered for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
The interior of each bud contains hairs that should not be eaten. Other common names for rose hips are rose haw and rose hep.
Ratings & Reviews
I love rose hip tea but this didn't have as much flavor as I'd have expected. I went through the bag MUCH more quickly than I thought - so I was really excited to buy these Rose Hips but I'm not sure that I'd buy them again.Jennifer, Stow, OH
