  • 1 cup freshly cut or dried rose petals/blossoms
  • 3 cups water hot, but not boiling
  • honey, to taste
  • 1/4 cup green tea leaves optional, if you want rose-flavoured green tea
  • 1/4 cup black tea leaves optional, if you want rose-flavored black tea


  • If using fresh rose petals, thoroughly rinse them with water before use.
  • Place the petals in a saucepan of hot water, but do not allow it to boil. If you are making an alternate version of black green tea, mix in the leaves at this step and allow them to steep aside the rose petals.
  • Cover the saucepan and let the rose petals steep for approximately 5 minutes.
  • Strain the mixture, leaving the rose petals behind.
  • Add the honey to taste, if necessary.

You can begin with dried rose blossoms or petals from your roses; simply remove fresh petals or blossoms and store them in a tea canister or other cool, dry place for 1-2 weeks. Some people prefer to use fresh petals to brew the tea, but the flavor is slightly different.
