Cold-Brew Rosewater Tea
Roses, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
Something about the sweetly delicate smell and flavor of roses just puts me in a good mood (probably has something to do with the antidepressant aromatherapy+botanical properties they have!)
Today I’m sharing a really simple cold-brewed rosewater tea recipe that has numerous delicious and beneficial uses.
Cold brewing is a great method for using more delicate herbs and flowers and can help your tea ingredients to retain more of their properties as hot water can sometimes diminish them. And it’s super easy to do. Just add your herbs or flowers to water in a glass jar and let them sit on the counter for at least 8 hours (overnight is best, you can also let them be in the moonlight to absorb those good cosmic vibes).
This recipe is yummy over ice, in botanical cocktails, blended in a smoothie or as-is! It can also be used to cook with, on your skin or in your bath. The ratio I’m sharing here is pretty strong, so it can definitely be diluted with more water when you’re ready to use it.
- 1/3 C dried rose petals
- 10 oz. filtered, distilled or mineral water
- Add rose petals and water to a glass jar
- Cover with a lid and allow to cold-brew on the counter for at least 8 hours, overnight is best
- Strain the petals and enjoy!
- Keep refrigerated for up to two weeks
