Time for "Rose Tea"


A dear friend is coming for a visit.  Because I haven't seen her for a while, 
 I want her to feel welcomed and loved. 

 So, when readying the rooms, I uncovered two dainty tea cups with their saucers...


One thought lead to another...until I found myself setting the table for tea, 
and not just any old tea, but 
"Rose" tea!


Rose tea ~ A tea made of tiny organically grown rose petals and buds...
Potpourri meant, for nothing less, than tasting and sipping with a dear sweet friend.


And, then I remembered, I had, stored away...
an (unopened) vintage box of paper napkins and coasters 
for an special occasion, such as this.


I can't wait to offer her "Rose Tea"...

Recipe for "Rose Tea"

Ratio: 1 cup water, spring or filtered water is best
