The rosehip (also called the rose haw) is the fruit of the rose plant. It begins to form in springtime and ripen in late summer through autumn, and is typically red-orange in color.
Rosehips contain vitamin C, beta-carotene, lycopene and other nutrients. They can be steeped for several infusions and will produce a brew that is pale red in color and mildly sweet-tart. Enjoy Rosehips on their own or blended with other herbs, fruits and flowers like cranberry and hibiscus. Rosehips have also been used to make fruit jams and marmalade.
Ingredients: Organic Rosehips.
Fruity and slightly tart, with a mild, honey-like sweetness and aromatic undertones reminiscent of cranberries.
