Making the perfect cup of Rose Tea

Ingredients:

  • Fresh rose petals/dried roses
  • Pot of boiling water
  • Honey
  • Sweet spices or flavours (optional)

 

Start with rinsing the rose petals to remove any dirt and be sure to remove the bottom white part of the petals. In a tea pot, boil water and add a handful of the roses/petals to it. Notice the colour of the water slowly become a beautiful shade of rosé. At this point, you can bring the boil to a halt and sprinkle some crushed spices of your liking to the rose tea. Using a tea strainer, pour your rosy tea into your favourite tea cup and maybe accompany it with some butter cookies and cupcakes.
