Benefits Of Rose Petal Tea, what you need to know.

  • Rose tea is an herbal tea made by steeping dried rosebuds and petals in water. Herbal tea can also be called an infusion or a tisane.
  • Naturally caffeine-free.

All roses are edible but look for food-grade rosebuds to make sure they weren’t treated with pesticides.

  • Roses from the flower shop shouldn’t be made into tea. The cut roses from a florist are loaded with chemicals.

Benefits Of Rose Petal Tea (Hot)

STEP 1: Boil water.

Instead of tap water, boil filtered water., or you can use tap water which is what I use, it’s all up to you.  the better your rose tea will taste.

Tea Tip: If you’re a serious tea drinker, get an electric kettle with a temperature setting so that you can brew tea using the correct water temperature.

I set the water in the electric kettle to 200°F, which is a bit under a full boil.

Make sure you boil some extra water to warm your teapot.

STEP 2: Roughly chop dried rosebuds.

Cutting the rosebuds in half, or giving it a rough chop makes it easier for the water to infuse and extract the flavor.

STEP 3: Warm up the teapot.

Pour boiled water into your teapot and swirl the water around. Pour out the water.

This step is always included when I want to brew tea properly. Warming the teapot keeps the tea water nice and hot so the tea flavor can be as pure as possible.

STEP 4: Put cut dried rose buds into the teapot and add hot water.

I measure out the rosebuds before I chop.

STEP 5: Cover teapot and steep for 5 minutes.

I find 5 minutes to be the ideal brew time for most herbal teas, but rose tea has a gentle flavor and can be steeped for longer if you wish.

The tea won’t get bitter or too strong if you brew it for longer than 5 minutes.

Keep your teapot covered to keep the water nice and hot.

Tea Tip: Brew herbals like rose tea in glass teapots so you can see the pretty buds and see the tea change color as it steeps.

STEP 6: Strain rose buds and pour hot tea into a teacup.

If you like your tea sweet, add sugar, honey, for a bit of sweetener.

This is what it should look like when done.

HOW TO MAKE THIS TEA

The best way to make iced tea is to cold-brew it. The flavor is the absolute best when brewed this way.

STEP 1: Roughly chop dried rosebuds.

Measure out the dried rosebuds then cut each in half or roughly chop. The rosebuds are fairly small and tightly closed so cutting them helps the water reach into the petal layers.

STEP 2: Put dried rosebuds and water in a pitcher or glass container.

Add cool or room temperature water into a pitcher and add in rosebuds. Use filtered water for the best tasting cold-brewed tea.

STEP 3: Cover the pitcher and put it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours.

Herbal tea, like rose tea, can be left to steep for up to 24 hours without getting bitter or too strong. If you make a lot of cold brew tea, get a cold brew glass pitcher.

STEP 4: Strain rose buds and pour tea into a cup.

Cold-brewed tea is already chilled so adding ice is optional. If you want to sweeten your iced rose tea, use simple syrup. It’s easiest to mix into your cold tea since it’s a liquid.

You can make simple syrup at home by mixing equal parts of sugar and hot water until the sugar dissolves. 

ROSE PETAL TEA TIPS

  • Use dried rosebuds for a more flavorful cup.
  • Rough chop or cut rosebuds before steeping in water.
  • A glass teapot is great for making rose tea so you can see the beautiful flowers in the water.
  • Try adding a couple of dried rosebuds to your green tea or black tea to give it a light floral flavor.

Q&A

What does rose tea taste like?

Rose tea tastes soft, floral (not a surprise), smooth, and a little sweet.

Is there caffeine?

There’s no caffeine in roses so there’s no caffeine in rose tea. and if you’re looking for other teas that have ZERO Caffeine as well. Go right here

What’s the difference between loose tea, tea sachets, and tea bags?

Use dried rose buds for the best-tasting tea. Rose tea in tea sachets and tea bags are of lower quality.

Can I make rose tea from roses from my garden? 

Yes, as long as they’re free of pesticides and chemical-free.

Is rose tea a real tea?

Rose tea isn’t real tea. The real tea is a tea made from the leaves of the camellia Sinensis plant. Herbal teas, like rose tea, are not real tea since they come from different plants.


THE RECIPE FOR YOUR HOT CUP OF ROSE TEA

PREP TIME: 2 mins

Steep TIME: 5 mins

TOTAL TIME:7 mins

YIELD: 1 serving

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup water + more to warm teapot
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosebuds

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Boil water. If using an electric kettle with a temperature setting, set it to 208°F. Boil a little more water than needed so that it can be used to warm up the teapot. Filtered water is best.
  • Roughly chop dried rosebuds. Roughly chop or cut each rosebud in half. The rosebuds are fairly small and tightly closed so cutting them helps the water reach into the petal layers.
  • Warm up the teapot. Pour some hot water into a teapot and swirl it around to warm it up. Discard the water.
  • Put cut rosebuds into the teapot and add hot water.
  • Cover teapot and steep for 5 minutes.
  • Strain rose buds and pour hot tea into a teacup.

TO MAKE COLD BREW ROSE TEA

1. Roughly chop dried rosebuds.

2. Put dried rosebuds and cool or room temperature water in a pitcher or glass container. Filtered water is best for a better-tasting iced tea.

3. Cover the pitcher and put it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours.

4. Strain rose buds and pour tea into a cup. Ice is optional since the tea is already cold.

TO SWEETEN ICED TEA To sweeten rose tea, use simple syrup. You can easily make simple syrup at home by mixing equal parts of sugar if you don’t like to use sugar in your tea, I really love my tea not sweet but as I have said in the other things on this site, It’s your cup of tea and if you like it sweet that’s ok too, no judgment from me:)

Add the hot water until sugar dissolves.
