Rosehip Tea

I am always excited when my orders from The Bulk Herb Store arrive!   I absolutely LOVE learning about herbs and how to use them to benefit my family and someday I hope to be able to raise all of the herbs we use myself.  For now, I rely heavily on The Bulk Herb Store. 

Yesterdays delivery consisted of Rosehips, Hawthorn powder and diatomaceous earth.  I've been wanting to try Rosehips for a while now, but for some reason have never ordered any.  Rosehips are very high in Vitamin C and are good for a number of things like stress, heart, and infections to name a few. 

I made my first cup of Rosehip tea this morning and I have to say it was REALLY good!  The flavor is just the tiniest bit tart and tangy, which is exactly what I like.  I suppose you could add a sweetener (like honey) if you choose, but as for me, I like it "straight."   I look forward to making it a regular part of my herbal tea consumption :)

My first cup of Rosehip Tea.  Delicious!


  1. oh! Thank you for sharing, we love the bulk herb store too. Frankly, I'm not sure what we would do without them. I think you've convinced me to add rose hips to my list! We especially like the red clover, we drink this one as soon as we get sick, and I just started the resolution tea. :) Blessings!!! :)

  2. I haven't tried the red clover, but my daughter used the Mama's Milk Tea while breastfeeding both of her daughters and I try keep a supply of various other herbs from there. We like the red raspberry, hawthorn, chamomile, and cinnamon for tea. I'll have to look into the red clover :)
