Vitamin infused tea

Rosehips

Bag of Rosehips

About a moth ago I was eating at a subway and noticed the black tea said vitamin infused. The tea had a normal back tea taste and I thought with the amount of tea I guzzle down each day it might be nice to get some vitamin’s from it.

I wasn’t able to find out what was added to the Subway tea but I did find that Rosehips have a lot of  vitamin C so I ordered a bag from amazon. I also found that rose hips can be used to tread  diarrhea and  constipation. I didn’t think it was impossible to treat both those symptoms with the same thing.  I haven’t noticed any changes from drinking tea brewed with rose hips. Homecooking.about.com has some good information on rosehips and even some links to recipes.

You can also buy Rose hips already in tea bags and I’m sure it would brew the same but I haven’t used it in the bags yet.

I use a Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker to make my tea at home. I like how quick it brews tea and its lasted me about 3 years with a lot of use. One day I might upgrade to a BUNN Quickbrew 3 Gallon Iced Tea Brewer.

This is how I brew my black tea with rose hips. In the summer time I follow the marks on the craft on how much ice and water to add. In the winter time I fill the craft with water and pore what fits out of the craft into the tea maker. I got more tea this way and can always add ice to my glass if desired. I have always used strong setting and usually use 4-5 tea bag. I like the cheap Walmart brand tea bags. They taste great and you cant beat the price at about $2 per 100. When using rose hips I throw a couple handfuls into the tea area and put my tea bags above like so.

The rose hips add very little flavor but what flavor they do add is a nice complement to the black tea flavor. I don’t add rose hips to every batch of tea but I usually make a batch with roe hips using this method about once a week.  That’s how I make my own home made DIY vitamin infused rose hip black tea.
