This wonderfully refreshing tea pairs the minty notes of spearmint and peppermint with the subtle floral-citrusy notes of rosehips, the seed-bearing fruit of the rose plant. Orange slices, lemon slices and your favorite edible flowers would make lovely garnishes for this special iced tea. Cinnamon stick swizzles also serve as a great addition.

  • 4 Frontier Co-op Organic, Fair Trade Cinnamon Sticks, optional

  • Orange and lemon slices, mint sprigs and edible flowers for garnish, optional
