March 21, 2024 by Golden Tips Teas India

Rose tea is a soothing herbal infusion from rose petals, buds, or rosehip fruit. With a gentle floral aroma and subtle sweetness, the tea rose provides a refreshing and calming beverage experience, perfect for rejuvenation and relaxation.

Types of Rose Tea

Here are some fantastic types of rose tea that tea lovers must try for sheer indulgence and a unique experience:

  • Rose Bud Tea: Made from dried rose buds, this rose tea offers a subtle floral flavor and a gentle sweetness. It is most touted for its calming effects, which make rose bud tea a soothing bedtime beverage.
  • Rose Petal Tea: It is created using dried rose petals. This tea boasts a fragrant aroma and a slightly tart flavor. Rose petal tea is loaded with vitamin C. This makes it excellent for supporting immune health and promoting radiant skin.
  • Rosehip Tea: Unlike other types, rosehip tea is derived from the rose plant fruit, not from the petals. Rich in antioxidants, nutrients, and vitamin C, rosehip tea is renowned for its immune-boosting properties and is often consumed to ward off colds and flu.
  • Blended Rose Teas: Many tea blends incorporate rose petals or rosehip as an ingredient, adding a floral note and additional health benefits to the brew. Blended rose teas may include green tea, black tea, or herbal infusions, creating a diverse range of flavors and profiles.

Tips for Brewing the Perfect Cup of Rose Tea

Whether you opt for fresh or dried petals, ensuring they're pesticide-free is imperative. Avoid using roses from florists or nurseries, as they're often treated. Nonetheless, for fresh petal tea, wash approximately two cups of petals and boil them with three cups for 5 minutes. Strain and serve.

On the other hand, if you're using dried petals or buds, steep one tablespoon in boiling water for 10 to 20 minutes. Different brands may recommend specific temperatures and brewing times.

Enjoy the tea plainly, or add a dash of honey to sweeten it.
