It’s National Tea Month!
I make this tea in a French press and brew it strong. I like to use a press because it makes it easy to strain out loose tea. Using loose tea allows me to save money by purchasing in bulk and with as much herbal tea as we drink, saving money is important. All I do is add more hot water to dilute it to the taste I’m looking for. Some days it’s a weak tea and other days I like it strong. Tea purists would perhaps brew it in a teapot and pour from there. Do what works best for you.
Rose hips and mint can be purchased at StarWest Botanicals or you can even save them from your garden. As long as you have not used any pesticides or herbicides while growing your herbs they’ll be healthy to eat. In case you’d like to give it a try, here’s a post about how to save and dry rose hips from Eat Weeds and this is how I grow and use mint around the garden.
