Roses have been a powerful symbol ever since they were first cultivated. Flourishing in the hot days and cold nights of the desert in ancient Persia, our Whole Rosebuds are grown in what is now Iran. The delicate buds are picked in the morning, out of the direct sunlight and during a low breeze. This secures their beautiful fragrance before they are slow-dried to retain their naturally enchanting flavour. Did you know, ‘herbal infusion’ is a preferable term to ‘herbal tea’, as tea is an infusion of leaves only from the Camellia sinensis.
