A cup of rosebud tea just before bed.
A delicate bit of heaven to soothe you to sleep, this tea is best served hot. Be sure not to over-brew or it develops an unfortunate aftertaste.
Brew 5-7 dried rosebuds for 1-2 minutes in 8-10 oz of water. I usually get my rosebuds from little tea stores and tea houses in Chinatown.
Another delicious treat to make with your new rosebud stash? Create a rosebud infused simple syrup (be sure to strain the buds from the simple) for use in cocktails with champagne and muddled strawberries. Yum.
