Rose Petal Tea Recipe

Roses from My Yard

First, Cut Rose Flowers from the rosebush

Separate the Petals from the Flowers

Put the Petals in a large bowl or quart mason jar. You can use 1 to 4 cups of flowers. I feel the more the better

Add 4 cups of Boiling Water

I add 2 Tablespoon of lemon juice to the tea, to bring the color out.

Let the tea steep for 30 minutes to 4 hours.

Strain the Petals from      the Rose Tea

When ready, pour the tea into a glass and add ice.

The rose petal tea makes a beautiful refreshing iced tea with a delicate flavor.
