Rose petals have been added to teas and hot beverages for years. They complement all drinks from green to black and even herbal teas like peppermint and rooibos. Rose petals can also be steeped in their own, producing an herbal elixir with a fresh floral taste and a distinct “flavor.” Adding rose petals to loose leaf tea will make it smell and look pretty as well as taking the taste to a new level. Enjoy our rose petals on their own or add a tiny amount to your loose leaf tea before steeping.    

History

Roses are millions of years old; they were used in cooking back in Ancient Roman times. Romans also used these flower petals as confetti at parties, for perfume, and in some pharmaceutical applications. Roses with eight petals were conceived as symbols of rebirth during the Renaissance. Through this time, the rose also became known for war. The War of the Roses happened when York and Lancaster of England went to war, the battle earned this name because the red rose represented Lancaster and York was represented by the white rose. Roses were a luxury item in the 17th century, with some royals in Europe counting rose petals and rose water as authorized tender. Despite this, Europe didn't cultivate roses until the 18th century. Cultivation process introduced to Europe from China, where they had already been growing the plants for quite a while. From Europe, they sailed to America with immigrants coming to the new world.  

Tasting notes

Rose petals are usually applied for infusing flavor into foods, but they taste floral and earthy, with a slight sweetness in them. Some people may say the flavor of rose petals is similar to strawberries. They have a light, sweet fruit flavor with a nice, smooth texture.

Beverage or other food pairing

“Food pairing” is a method for identifying which foods go well together.
  • Rose-infused beverages: 

    Rose petals can add a complex floral taste to juices, lemonades, and iced tea. Add some fresh rose petals to release the flavor, and turn them into a cold, fruity beverage. Rose petals can also be frozen into ice cubes for a gorgeous and delicious punch.
 
  • Rose simple syrup:

    Mix equal parts water and sugar in a pot and bring it to a boil. Stir continuously until the sugar is fully dissolved. Reduce to a simmer and stir in drained or fresh rose petals. Remove the mixture from the heat and let it sheer for about 10 minutes. Strain out the rose petals with an excellent sifter, and allow the syrup to chill. Rose simple syrup can be delicious in cocktails, tea, and lemonade.
 
  • Rose sugar:

    Chop up one-half cup of rose petals and combine them with two cups of sugar. Flow the sugar into a tight tin and store it in a cold, dark location for about one week. Strain the sugar in a sieve into a clean glass jar to separate the petals. A few of them can remain. This floral sugar is excellent for tea or to sprinkle on top of cookies.
 
  • Rose butter:

    Chop up aromatic rose petals and mix them into softened butter. Press the butter into a ramekin and chill until it’s ready to eat. You can also add finely ground sugar or nut extract for additional sweetness. This delicate butter is perfect served on crackers, biscuits, or fruity muffins.
 
  • Rosewater:

    Rose-infused water provides a great way to combine the flavor of the rose into a whole dish, such as sponge cake, custard, or other baked goods.
 

Serving Suggestions

The rose petals and rosebuds are always appreciated as a food ingredient. They are perfect ingredients for using in culinary. Dried rose petals are used as a topping for foods and sweets, mixed in yogurt, desserts, and tea infusion.  

How Rose Petals are Harvested

Rose bushes are typically cultivated in areas with loose, fertile soil. Bushes should have direct sunlight for 6 to 8 hours and may grow up to 3 feet tall. These plants enjoy being watered regularly. They do not like the cold, and they won't last with extended exposure to colder temperatures. There are only two types of edible roses. One is a lesser quality red rose; the other is a very high-quality pink rose that has plenty of flavors and a pleasant fragrance. Rose petals are picked early in the morning while the rosebuds are still partly closed as this helps them keep the most definite flavor.  

Storage

Small and Large Natural Rose Petals will stay at their best for four months. Our petals are very easy to look after – store them at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.  

Allergy

Allergy is a reaction by your immune system to something that does not trouble other people (an unusual immune response to the proteins found in vegetables and fruit). People who have allergies are usually sensitive to more than one item. Flowers like camellias, lilies, and roses, do not have pollen that is scattered by the wind, and they usually do not affect people with hay fever. However, some highly aromatic flowers that do not provoke allergies can still be an irritant with their strong scents.
