Step-by-Step Guide: Making Pink Rose Petal Tea (One Cup Serving)



- 1 cup of water
- 1 tablespoon of dried red rose petals
- Optional: honey or sweetener of your choice
- Optional: lemon slice



1. **Boil Water:**
   Start by boiling a cup of water in a kettle or on the stovetop. Use fresh, filtered water for the best flavor.

2. **Prepare Rose Petals:**

   Measure 1 tablespoon of dried red rose petals. You can find dried rose petals at specialty tea shops or online herbal stores. Make sure they are food-grade and suitable for making tea.

3. **Place Rose Petals in Cup:**
   Place the measured rose petals into a tea infuser or directly into a teacup.

4. **Pour Hot Water:**
   Once the water has reached a rolling boil, carefully pour it over the rose petals in the

cup. Fill the cup almost to the top, leaving a little space for the petals to expand.

5. **Steep the Tea:**
   Cover the cup with a saucer or a small plate to trap the steam and aroma. Allow the rose petals to steep in the hot water for about 5-7 minutes. This time can be adjusted to your preference for a stronger or milder flavor.

6. **Remove the Infuser:**
   If you used an infuser, carefully remove it from the cup once the steeping time is up. If you didn't use an infuser, you can strain the tea while pouring it into another cup.

7. **Optional Additions:**
   If desired, you can enhance the flavor of your rose petal tea by adding a slice of lemon or a drizzle of honey. These additions can complement the floral notes of the tea.
