Place 1 deep crimson rose into a brewing vessel with capacity of 300cc-500cc. Pour in hot water at 70°C. The translucent light blue infusion will gradually turn pale red. Steep for 2 to 3 minutes and serve. Where necessary, gently swirl the tea brewing utensil or use a teaspoon to separate the petals to help them get back to shape and release the flavour. It is good for multiple infusions, just refill hot water at 70°C to the brewing vessel and increase the steeping time a bit. Repeat until the flavour fades.
An appropriate amount of goji berries, honey or rock sugar can be added according to personal preference.
- Possible bruising and pressing when the rose buds are being harvested and dried may result in the deposit of natural sap or fluid on the surface of the petals and receptacle; this may appear in the form of fine white powder or tiny white bits. As natural substance of the roses, it is safe for consumption.
- The anthocyanins is a water-soluble flavonoid pigment and turns pale over time. This is a natural phenomenon.
- Anthocyanins released by the deep crimson roses in the course steeping will manifest changes according to the pH values in drinking water - alkalinity causing it to turn blue or green, acidity causing it to turn yellow or red. This is a natural phenomenon and is not a cause for worry.
- Deep crimson roses are pure natural plants; as such, the size of individual buds may vary.
