Whole Rose Hips
Caffeine free product. 100% organically- grown and hand-picked whole rose hips from cultivated Bulgarian rosehip fields.
The red rosehip fruits make wonderful tea which has specific fresh taste with a mild bitter note. The fruits are hand-picked from the rosehip bushes, also known as “wild roses”. During spring the bushes beautify everything around with their gentle flowers, while in the autumn they give us these small red fruits, packed with the summer sun’s energy and a combination of useful ingredients.
The rose hips (Rosa canina fruits) contain extremely high amounts of vitamin C. For comparison, 100 g of fresh lemon contains 53 mg, whereas in 100 g of rose hips the average amount of vitamin C found is about 500 mg. Besides vitamin C, rose hips contain high amounts of vitamin A (about 7 mg in 100 gr of fruit) and essential fatty acids (Omega-3 and Omega-6). The seeds of the fruit contain vitamin E, which is known to give the skin a healthier look, promoting elasticity, fighting wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Tea made from dried rosehips can help stimulate the immune system, strengthen the heart and the vascular system, tone and refresh. Recipes for making tea and cold infusion can be found in the section “Suggested Use”.

Bring 1-2 cups of water to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons of whole rosehips. Cover and steep for 12-15 minutes while occasionally stirring. Remove from heat. The rosehip tea has to be left for 5-6 hours, so that it can fully absorb Vitamin C from the rosehip fruits. Add honey and lemon if desired. Enjoy!
2 tablespoons of chopped rosehips are soaked in 0.5 liters of water for 10 hours. After that they are strained and rubbed through a strainer. Cold infusion keeps a larger amount of the easily degraded vitamins. Add honey and lemon if desired.
