  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 2 Tablespoons rose buds or petals
  • 1 Tablespoon hibiscus petals


  • In a small saucepan, combine the 3 ingredients.
  • Bring the water to a simmer and turn off the heat, stirring briefly to saturate the buds.
  • Allow the tea to steep for 10 minutes.
  • Strain it, as the hibiscus blossoms can be bitter if steeped too long.
  • Sweeten and serve hot.


In warm weather, or as a thirst quencher, this also makes a great iced tea.
