Moroccan mint tea with rose petals

 

I recently came across Twinings’ Moroccan Mint with Rose flavour green tea I rather enjoyed it. The fragrance was sumptuous, but the flavor, although pleasant, not quite as delightful as the scent. I am guessing it’s because of the extra flavors, so I decided to make it myself, with natural ingredients and no extras.

The result?

Well, I can see why they added flavors: the green tea and mint overpower, so you might want to add the rose petals at the end, after removing the rest, and let them steep a bit longer. The end result is less fragrant, but stronger tasting than the Twinings’ blend.
