Rose Tea Making
We have had a lot of rain in May giving me abundant roses this year. I wanted to enjoy my roses all year long. I love to bathe, eat, drink and scent my house with roses. To make rose tea you must have fresh roses that ARE NOT SPRAYED. This is very important -you do not want to drink bug spray nor preservatives from store bought. I do not spray my red roses ever. So they are safe to harvest, rinse, open and dehydrate. After drying overnight add half a jar of petals to half a jar of your favorite tea. I like to use Assam or Oolong with my rose petals. It is great with a pinch of sugar and milk. Makes a nice cup of tea that tastes and smells like roses.
