Tender french rosebuds are harvested while still buds in adolescent stage, preserving their maximum nutritional value and retaining their sweet full flavour.
Rosebud tea has been enjoyed for more than 4000 years. Its benefits includes reduced symptoms of depression, calmed nerves, increased circulation and improved digestion.
Unlike what many people believe, not all Vitamin C is born equal. Rosebuds contain a high level of vitamin C in raw form which being unprocessed is most easily absorbed by the body. It boosts the immune system, promotes healthy skin and bones and helps the body absorb iron.
Rosebud tea is high in other antioxidants called catechins polyphenols, specifically epigallocatechin gallate (or EGCG). These protects the body from free- radical damage which is believed to cause cancer. EGCG can not only prevent free-radical damage but also kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells surrounding them.
Steep 8-10 flowers in 200ml of boiling water for 5 mins. Strain and enjoy in solitude.
