Foodie Friday: Rose Tea

Rose tea: green tea flavored with roses

I have roses blooming in my yard, but I haven’t been a big fan of eating rose-flavored treats. (The blame goes to a rose Turkish Delight I ate. I thought it would be like ambrosia on my tongue, given its prominence in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe… but I was sorely disappointed.)

My one exception to this rule is rose tea. It’s green tea infused with a hint of the floral. I like the subtlety of the flavor, and the bitterness of the tea counterbalances the too aromatic taste of the rose petals.

Fun fact: Rose thorns are technically called “prickles.”

    Sounds intriguing, though I prefer hot tea. Maybe I’ll have to give it a try.
