A Refreshing Recipe: Iced Rose Green Tea

A Refreshing Recipe: Iced Rose Green Tea

Yesterday I shared all of the incredible benefits of rose water, as revealed by holistic wellness expert Elissa Goodman. Knowing all the ways the natural ingredient contributes to a healthy system has inspired me to integrate rose into my lifestyle wherever possible. As Elissa suggested, it can be as easy as mixing a bit into hot or cold tea. 

I discovered a recipe that takes a bit more advanced planning, but has a really refreshing result. This simple cold-brewed iced green tea incorporates the detoxifying rose via beautiful dried petals that give it not only a subtle floral taste and aroma, but also make it quite lovely in a glass pitcher. Furthermore, the addition of whole coriander lends a brightness that makes this an ideal beverage for the warm days ahead. Cheers! XXJKE

Iced Green Tea Recipe

  • Units:
  • Course: Drinks

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons loose leaf green tea
  • 1 tablespoon dried rose petals optional
  • 1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds optional
  • 4 cup 946 ml filtered water divided

Place the green tea, rose petals, and coriander in a pitcher. Bring 1/2 cup water not quite to a boil. Pour it over the tea leaves, wait ten seconds, then add the remaining 3 1/2 cups water. Refrigerate until the tea is a strength you like — typically 4 - 8 hours. Strain and serve over ice.
