Brewing guide:


1. Prepare half a cup of hot water.
Put a few rose buds into the hot water and let brew for a while. You can tell when the rose changes colour.





























2. Take a tablespoonful of honey.
*I like it sweet but you can adjust the amount of honey to your prference or choose not to add any.















3. Add in honey and mix till melted.
















4. Add in more water and stir well.
* water can be at room temperature or cold water is also fine. Add ice if desired.

Enjoy your tea!


My review: Tea looks pretty. Sweet smelling. Taste fragrant without leaving a bitter aftertaste. Very mild and smooth.

Let's all drink to a healthier, prettier us!
