This tea has a natural rosy taste and aroma, making it a lovely and highly enjoyable tea. It offers a flowery aroma, a light sweet taste and results in a pale brew.

How to Brew
Measure out the quantity of buds you want to steep and rinse them with boiling water. The quantity varies based on how strong you want the flavor, but you should plan on using 1-2 teaspoons of rose buds.
While it's true that 'rinsing' removes dust that has settled on the tea during the aging process, it is more importantly used to 'awaken' the buds before you infuse them. To rinse your tea, place the buds in a brewing vessel, pour near-boiling water over them and then quickly discard the water.
After you've rinsed your rose buds, you're ready to steep them. Bring your water to 195-205°F, and steep for 1-3 minutes.
This is a soothing, mild, delicious tea. And the tiny, tiny rosebuds are just beautiful to look at. Such a nice discovery--thank you!
