Rosemary Tea

I've been drinking rosemary tea for the last few weeks before going to sleep. I had read about some of the health benefits and prefer it to drinking wine at night. Apparently rosemary is loaded with vitamins (A/B/C/D/E/K), good for the brain and aids digestion. I normally cut several inches of fresh plant and soak steep it in 176F water for 5-10 minutes. There is no bitterness and it is extremely fragrant. I've tried additional variations such as rosemary and thyme and a third combo using honey as a sweetener and cooling down the rosemary as a ice tea. They are all very nice.

No doubt rosemary tea is good for you, but it doesn't have anything more than trivial amounts of vitamin C. Rosemary has some vitamin A, but it doesn't make it into the tea. It does not contain measurable amounts of D, E, or K.
