My First Homemade Rose Hip Tea
Yes, I did it! I just tasted my very first homemade rose hip tea. And it tasted OK. :D
But look at the color. My tea didn't get any redder than this. Is the store-bought rose hip tea artificially colored or something?
The biggest problem was... it took SOOOO long for the flavor to come out from the dried rose hips. The tea was already cold by the time it got enough flavor, so I ended up pouring everything into a sauce pan and heating it on the stove to drink the tea warm.
Well, well... I'm satisfied that I completed the project. But I'm not sure if I want to do this again. There are many other foods that are rich in Vitamin C, after all, and think about all those scraping and cleaning that you have to do to make this herbal tea...
