Brewing instructions


Rosehip Tea is a type of Herbal Tea made from the fruit of the rose plant. While its flower petals have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially when brewed up, this particular beverage likewise has much to offer.

Upon the first sip, expect distinctly earthy flavours with subtly sweet undertones. What’s more, it’s jam-packed with Vitamin C, thus contributing to your daily nutritional intake.

It’s worth noting, too, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company pack Rosehip Tea, like almost all of our products, fresh to order. This is our way of guaranteeing not only quality but also consistency. Why not discover the true potential of this wholesome, flavoursome, indeed awesome, infusion today? You won’t be disappointed by its unparalleled character and charm.

Rosehip Tea Botany and History

Rosehips are just one component of the Rose (Rosa) plant, which belongs to the Rosaceae family. It is a herbaceous shrub found in both Eastern and Western hemispheres, although it likely originated from Persia (modern-day Iraq and Iran).

Rosehips follow after its flowering season, and are easily recognised by their resemblance to crabapples.

People have consumed Rosehips and Rosehip Tea since prehistoric times. However, it was during the Second World War (1939-1945) that this remarkable, nutritional herb came into its own.

Indeed, when German blockades halted large quantities of vital supplies to Britain, including Vitamin C-filled citrus fruit, Rosehips became a suitable substitute.

During this period, the UK government actively encouraged the public to harvest and make foodstuffs out of Rosehips. It proved to be a tremendous success, although its popularity waned following the conflict’s conclusion.

Now, however, Rosehip Tea is once again immensely sought-after. Buy it from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company today.

Why Drink Rosehip Tea

Studies suggest that Rosehip Tea could support and even boost the immune system. Furthermore, apart from its high levels in Vitamin C, it also contains an abundance of other vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that support our health and wellbeing.

This includes Vitamins A, B, D, E, K, and P, calcium, carotenoids, flavonoids, magnesium, pectin, potassium, rutin, sodium, sulphur, tannins and zinc.

There are also concentrations of ascorbic, citric acid, copper, cobalt, iron, malic, phosphorus and silicon. Combined, these constituents improve life in small yet significant ways.
