What’s My Favorite Nighttime Ritual?

A cup of rosebud tea just before bed.

dried rosebuds

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.
