Tea Brewing Recipe

Take two teaspoons of petals for one cup (fresh or dry petals can be used). Pour hot water (not boiling water). Temperature of water should be 176 - 185°F

Cover this cup with a lid or saucer, and let it brew for about five minutes.

The taste of the tea is sweet and pleasant with a fresh fruity aroma, so no additives in the form of honey or sugar are needed.

Rose petals are often mixed with common types of tea: black, green, pu-erh, white and red. To create your own tea blend for 2 tablespoons of rose petals, take 1 spoon of regular tea and place it in a hermetically sealed container for several days to mix the flavors.

To make your tea from the tea blend, take 1½ - 2 spoons of tea leaves, pour boiling water in the amount of 500 ml, let it brew for 5-7 minutes, and only then you can enjoy the original and delicate taste.
