Description - Research and Analysis
In Germany, rosehips tea or Hagenblut is a national institution. The pink infusion is a common and popular tea and is sold everywhere. The red berries (rose hips) appear on the otherwise naked branches of the bushes in the autumn. Sweetbriar often grows along country roads and can form impenetrable thickets where birds love to nest. The plant's botanical name is rosa canina, meaning "dog rose." The bush flowers in May and June and after the bloom dies, the rosehips form and are collected. Collection occurs when they are ripe, generally after the first autumn frosts - but one has to get there before the birds, as they to love the red berries. Rosehips are mainly used to enhance infusions but as noted previously they also make a delicious red/orange colored jam or jelly.

Hot tea brewing method: To prepare as an infusion, use 1 teaspoon (for a stronger infusion use 2 teaspoons) per cup of tea (about 8 ounces). Put into your teapot and add boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes and then pour. It is not necessary to strain the rosehips as they sink to the bottom of the teapot and are not easily stirred up. For additional flavor add a large slice of orange or lemon or three slices of fresh juicy peaches. Sweeten to taste.
