We love to add these Rose buds to other teas to lend a zesty, sweet fragrance to the brew. The teas that rose blends best with tend to be on the darker end of the tea spectrum like Oolongs and Blacks because the sweetness of the Rose will fight against the freshness of lighter tea.
Rose has a cleansing action and can help fight infection in the digestive tract and help re-establish the normal bacterial population of the intestines. Rose may enhance immunity, helping to restrain the development of infections through their cleansing action. In China, rose is often used as a drink to cleanse and brighten the skin and is blended with all sorts of other medicinal herbs.
