Notable Ingredients At A Glance
Dried Rose Petals – Pink Rosa Damascena is widely used in the preparation of rose tea. Many other varieties are used as well, mainly in red and pink hues; however, they may be more bitter than the Rosa Damascena variety.
Rose tea is typically made using dried rosebuds or petals, but fresh roses can also be utilized too. You can either dry them yourself from organically produced roses or purchase them already dried food-grade rose petals or buds.
If you’re drying rose petals at home, ensure they’re pesticide-free and steer clear of those from supermarkets or florists, frequently chemically treated.
Honey – For the sweetener, I have used honey. You can use any other natural or artificial sweetener of your choice.
