  2. Strain the rosehips out and use the syrup immediately or let it cool completely and then store in a mason jar in the fridge. 

Rosehip Chamomile Tea Latte

  1. Heat a cup in the microwave until it’s warm.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons Rosehip Simple Syrup.
  3. Add 2 heaping teaspoons of chamomile tea to infuser/strainer of choice. Pour a 1/2 cup of hot water over the tea, cover, and steep for 10 minutes (if steeping tea directly into a cup, put a plate on top-if steeping tea in a separate device make sure the lid is closed).
  4. Take the strainer out or pour/drip the tea into the cup.
  5. Heat milk of choice in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds until steaming and just about to boil. Or heat it in a small sauce pan. 
  6. Add 1/4 teaspoon rose water and then froth with a milk frother. Pour into cup and serve.

Recipe Notes

Prep time does not include making the Rosehip Simple Syrup.

*I think the best order to add simple syrup to lattes is first: syrup, tea or coffee, milk. But depending on your tea brewing method, add it at different times. If you have a Teavana Perfectea tea maker or cup-sized mesh infusers and mesh balls, you can easily add the syrup first. If you put your loose leaf tea in reusable cloth bags or filters, consider adding the simple syrup after your tea has steeped-they end up collecting all the simple syrup and the tea doesn’t infuse as well sitting in the syrup.
