Red Rose Tea Recipe

Refresh your days with red rose tea!
This beautiful coloured tea is a mix of rose, hibiscus, and mint leaves plus coriander and fennel seeds and with a drop of lime juice and if you like a drop of maple syrup. These are all ingredients nature send you for cooling down in hot summer days. It is also a nice alternative drink for other seasons too. I never tried rose tea before and now, inspired from two beautiful women, @lauraplumb and Lisa @soulfoodbakery, I am in love with it!
Rose is a symbol of love, beauty and spirituality & used in Ayurveda to balance the five elements and its anti-aging effects.It is soothing and astringent ( a taste we do not get enough among the 6 tastes)
In Ayurveda, it is advised not to drink iced drinks even in hot summer days. Ice blocks digestion and even if it feels cooling at first, it will create heaviness due to its extreme effect on digestion.
Instead of ice, try these cooling teas at room temperature and you’ll see the difference in your sensations and hydration.
I dried my own roses from the garden, so make sure you use organic rose petals. I made a tea and and also using condensation method, a rose water tonic, too but that’s another post soon.
You can also make a tea from only fennel, mint, hibiscus or rose petals separately and all will be delicious and refreshing with a drop of lime juice. Take this time to slow down, smell, enjoy the beautiful color and pause your busy life for this moment.
In addition to being a delicious hydrating tea, it will also help you to ease your stomach, acidic digestion, calm and sooth your soul!
