Pepermint is a hybrid cross between watermint and spearmint. The leaves from the peppermint plat are naturally caffeine free and contain a large quantity of menthol. It’s regarded as helpful for digestion, colds and flu, sinusitis, dry cough, fever and nausea. On top of that it adds greatly to the flavour of the blend.
Elder flowers, also called European elder, have a long history of use in traditional German medicine. They have antioxidant properties and an antiviral effect, which is why they're still popularly used to help fight off colds and flu.
A rose hip is the fruit of a rose. Dried rosehip shells used in tea are caffeine free and are particularly high in Vitamin C (they contain 50% more vitamin C than oranges). They also contain Vitamins A, D and E, iron as well as essential fatty acids and antioxidant flavonoids. Research in Denmark and Germany using a rose hip remedy found it was actually very beneficial in treating rheumatoid arthritis. So don’t just smell the roses, try them in your tea as well.
