Persian rose tea

Drinks

Ingredients
1 cup black tea
¼ a cup dried rose petals
2 tsp green cardamom seeds

Preparation

To dry your own rose petals at home, all you need are freshly picked rose petals, washed and then carefully dried of all remaining water. Place the petals in a thin layer in a warm and dry place away from the sun and let them dry for about a week. After that, collect the petals in a jar and your rose petal tea is ready for use.
Mix all the ingredients mentioned above and store them in a jar. Cardamom seeds are best used as whole pods crushed or chopped into small pieces. If you don’t have those, powdered cardamom will do just fine. Use one teaspoon of the prepared mixture per cup. Pour the boiling water over the herbal tea, let it steep for about 5 minutes and serve in cups with milk or honey.
