Have you ever had a rose milk tea? On the weekend while over at our friend’s place, I had a chance to try it and I've been smitten ever since. It doesn't only look beautiful but it also tastes heavenly. When we came back home I went straight to the kitchen to make it myself and after a few tries I managed to brew a whole teapot of this mind and soul soothing goodness. Btw: did you know that rosebuds are super healthy for women? Supposedly they have this great power to improve our skin, help our bodies feel better and even ease the mood. Brilliant, isn’t it?
Well, if you fancy trying it, here is the how to I used:
First, pour some boiling water over 2-3 teaspoons of rosebuds. Let it stand for about a minute and then strain the rosebuds while pouring the water out. This step is called: rosebuds awakening. Next, put the strained rosebuds into your teapot with 3 teaspoons or 2 teabags of your favourite black or green tea. Brew about 10 ounces of water and pour it into the teapot. While the tea is brewing in the teapot, warm up about 150ml of fresh milk. After about 5 minutes, remove the teabags from the pot or strain through the loose tea leaves and add the hot milk. Finish it off by sweetening it with honey or brown sugar. Ta dah!
P.S: Fancy more tea goodness?
P.P.S: And all things coffee if you are more of a coffee-person:)
