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.
