Rose Story

 

The rose is considered as the most beautiful flower in the world, renowned for its exquisite fragrance. Originating from Persia, it is cultivated from at least 500 B.C. in Mediterranean and Middle East countries.

 

For centuries, the rose has been a symbol of beauty and love. While the Greeks and Romans dedicated the rose to the Gods, the Persians, in their poems and paintings, associated it with the nightingale. Once the flowers complained in Heaven that their Queen, the Lotus blossom, slept by night. In order to bring about a reconciliation, Allah named the white rose Queen of Flowers.

 

Of the hundreds of rose species cultivated around the world, the damask rose ( Rosa Damascena ) is the most fragrant of all. The exquisite fragrance of this rose has been captured and preserved in the form of rose oil and rose water by a method that can be traced to ancient times in the Middle East, where it is still highly praised as food, cosmetic and traditional medicine.  

 

Bulgaria and Turkey are currently the top producing countries of damask roses. The Rose Valley, a region just south of the Balkan Mountains, is where most of the production takes place in Bulgaria. The picking season lasts from May to June and is intensely manual with flowers carefully picked one by one by hand, and laid in willow-baskets every morning before dawn.

 

Today, Damask roses are commercially harvested mainly for their use in high-end perfumery. Essential oil made from the Bulgarian Damask Rose ( rose otto ) can cost more than $500 per ounce ! The Damask rose is highly praised and used  in cooking as a flavouring ingredient or spice in Persian, Indian, and Middle Eastern cuisine. Damask rose water is very popular in the flavoring of desserts such as ice creamjam, Turkish delights and marzipan. Whole Damask flower buds and petals are also dried to make a delicious herbal tea called "zuhurat".

Brewing Instruction

 

This herbal tea is delicious hot or iced - and even reheated the following day!

 

HOT TEA

 

With tea bag

One sachet is good to infuse a whole tea pot of 2-4 cups (300-600 ml); to your taste. We recommend that you infuse the tea bag only once to enjoy the natural colors that will be released with the first infusion.

 

Infuse 1 sachet in 300-600 ml of freshly boiled water for 5-10 min. Make sure to keep tea covered while steeping so that the health promoting essential oils don't evaporate. When it is to your taste, remove the tea bag and serve. If you have any leftover, just refrigerate and reheat gently the following day. 

 

With loose tea 

Before scooping, shake your FloralTea tin upside down to blend, for perfect taste and color from one cup to the next.

 

Scoop 1-2 g of blend per cup; to your taste. Infuse in freshly boiled water for 5-10 min. When it is to your taste, filter and serve. If you have any leftover, just refrigerate and reheat gently the following day. 

 

 

ICED TEA

 

Follow the above instructions for hot tea, and then refrigerate before serving. You can freeze a portion in ice cubes and use them instead of regular ice cubes to keep your tea iced cold without diluting the taste when the ice cubes are melting. If you have any leftover, just refrigerate again and serve cold the following day.

Health Benefits

 

This herbal tea is packed with damask rose buds and petals, a sumptuous medicinal plant  renowned for its anti-aging benefits.

 

In Greek mythology, rose was the symbol of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Cleopatra used to take her bath in rose petals and milk. During the middle ages, the rose was cultivated in monastery gardens for medicinal purposes.

 

The rose has a long history of use in herbal medicine, especially in the area of skin care.  The rose is very soothing to all skin types, especially valuable for dry, sensitive and aging skins. Regarded as tonic and rejuvenating, rose petals are used by both men and women to tone and smooth the skin. Rose petals  have an astringent effect and also used to diminish redness and provide a calming effect for acne and eczema.  Rose tea is used in traditional medicine to regulate conditions influenced by female hormones, including menopause and menstrual problems. With its exquisite fragrance, rose tea is believed to lift spirits and be aphrodisiac. 

 

Praised for centuries in traditional medicine, now you too can enjoy all the benefits of the Damask rose with our luscious Rose herbal tea !
