We love pure rosehip tea, especially this time of year. The tangy, fruity tea is just perfect on a cold winter's evening, and it's even better with honey. With the popularity of moon milk today, it seemed only natural to include these rosy gems in a moon milk recipe. We were impressed with the results, and we think you will be too!
What is Moon Milk?
Drinking a glass of warm milk before bed has been popular for generations, but the tradition is even older than many people realize - it dates back to ancient Ayurvedic practices. Today, many people add herbs, spices, and sweeteners to warm milk as a part of their nighttime routine, earning it the name "moon milk". Moon milk is extremely versatile - you can use either dairy or non-dairy milk and incorporate the herbs of your choice.
Ingredients (1 Cup)
- 1 tbsp Rosehip Tea
- 1 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
- 1 cup water
- 2 tsp honey or other sweetener of your choice
- Bring the rosehips and water to a boil and simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes. During this time, much of the water will evaporate.
- Let the mixture set in the refrigerator, preferably for a few hours. The longer it sets, the stronger your rosehip tea will become.
- When you are ready to enjoy your moon milk, strain the rosehips from the steeped tea and combine the tea, milk, and honey.
- Heat until the mixture is warm and frothy (about 5 minutes), stirring continuously.
- Serve and enjoy!
