I'm not sure but I don't think so? This might sound like a daft question, but were they on a rosebush? Thorny stems?

Yes, they were on a rose bush… but I think that rose hips are different from rose buds, aren’t they?

Yes, rose buds are compacted petals and stuff, not shiny like a berry.

Right, I think very likely rose hips, then!

I don't make rose hip tea IRL, but I do make rosehip jelly. It goes great with roast dinner, or a cheese plate :)

Rosehip jam is my absolute favorite… it’s perfect on a biscuit or slice of bread. I’m not the greatest fan of jelly with cheese or meat, but it sounds… erm… interesting.

(Which recalls to me that ancient Chinese curse :D)
