Roses are perfect for every occasion, including afternoon tea. My husband usually buys me flowers about once a month, and when he brings roses, I make this light and gently flavored tea once the flowers have all seen their best.
- Rose petals - these are available from specialist tea stores; if you have the time, you can also dry your own rose petals - instructions below
- Greenpowder tea
- Pick the rose petals and make sure they are free of dew.
- Half fill a net bag and close with an elastic.
- Hang the bag in a warm, dry and dark place to dry. This will take anywhere from a few days to a week, depending on the humidity of your environment.
