It certainly packs a punch - both the smell and taste are strong, much more so than I've experienced with rosemary tea or cooking with rosemary. As well as sipping this from time to time as a stimulating drink I can certainly see it going into a salad dressing or sauce.
I don't have great circulation so this ought to be a good drink for me as rosemary boosts the circulation (I've also gone back to sprinkling a little cayenne pepper on my vegetables!). Now there's a thought... rosemary and cayenne wine, yee hah!
Rosemary is such an amazing herb that has so many uses. I just did a quick search on my blog to remind myself of some of the recipes I've used it in.
- In Winter hair blues? Give your hair a herbal treat I wrote about using rosemary in a homemade herbal hair oil and vinegar hair rinse
- In our UK Herbarium Blog Party: Emerging from winter with herbs we had a rosemary and St John's Wort tea
- I use rosemary in the Nettle and Rosemary shampoo I make for Amiya Natural Beauty
- My recent experiments in making my own perfume included rosemary in the lovely Hungary Water
