  1. I really enjoyed this tea. I was beautiful and It had great flavor. I used a Rosehip/HIbiscus blend, (I couldn’t find plain Rosehip) it worked perfectly in your recipe. I love how the honey mellows the flavors, but allows them all to shine thru, the honey, the chili, the lemon the ginger and the tea, simply beautiful. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again.

    • Thanks Kato for trying and for the review! I can get her easily Rosehip/HIbiscus tea mixture. I think that the hibiscus is giving lot of taste to the not so aromatic rosehip tea! Do you know I sometimes make this tea with the hibiscus mixture as well? So dear friend, you really followed my recipe with my unwritten variation! Thanks a lot for commenting this possibility!

  2. I’ve just finished a cup of this lovely tasting and fragrant tea. I used the dried rose hips and grated the ginger. So warm, comforting and tasty. What a great brew. Thank you for sharing, I love this.
