Rosehip can be brewed both fresh and dried. In order for the berries to brew faster, they are crushed or pierced with a knife.

To preserve all the beneficial properties of rose hips, it is necessary to choose the right water temperature and brewing method. Too hot water or boiling destroy vitamins and make the drink almost useless.

It is also important to note that glassware or a thermos with a glass flask are ideal options for preparing a drink, since vitamin C is destroyed (oxidized) when it comes into contact with metal. We recommend grinding fruits with ceramic knives or in a special mortar. If this is not possible, then the decoction can be prepared in one of the following ways and then stored in a glass container.
