Rose Water Iced Tea {By Tammy}

It is such a pleasure blogging for you today!

For those of you who are new to the blog and don't know me, I am Catherine's daughter, Tammy.

Every once in a while I like to sneak into the LTG kitchen and experiment...usually in the baking department, but enough about me.  Let's not dilly dally any longer shall we?

It's warm and sunny outside and you're sitting at your computer cooped up inside.  Ok, well maybe you're sitting by the air conditioner, in which case, I totally understand.

So whether you're chilling by the A/C, sitting pretty poolside or what have you, here is a delicious, whimsical drink that will help you to cool right down. (Did I mention it's super healthy too?)

If you happen to have a rose bush near by, then this will be rather easy to prepare.  If not, time to visit the florist shop...
Brighten up this drink with some fresh orange juice and white tea...or lemon juice can work just as well.
....oh yes and candied rose petals for garnish ;)

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

Cheers to Summer.  To the long days and blazing sunsets.  The restless nights and starry skies.
Never let a moment go to waste.  Soak up the sun and those moments of invincibility.  Cherish the time we have together and make everyday an everlasting memory.  Chase the golden hour.

Stay tuned. I'll be taking over Living the Gourmet again very soon.

  2. I have never cooked with flowers before, this is so unique. I love the quotes also. I hope you share this recipe on our BBQ Block Party.

  10. Refreshing and delightful! A wonderful drink.



  11. Hi Tammy. It's so good to meet you! Thanks, too, for giving your mom a break and taking over for her today. It's nice and warm today, but we're inside anyhow because the storm clouds are heavy down here in the south. Rain definitely wouldn't keep me from trying this elegant, delicious tea though. It looks amazing.

  12. I've never had rose water tea before, but I love ice tea and will have to give this a try sometime. Thanks for the great recipe.

  13. How delightful. I'll await more posts from you in the future.

    Have a terrific day. Hugs to Catherine. :)

  14. I've never tried Rose Water Iced Tea but it sounds very refreshing. I'll have to get some Rose Water and whip up a batch for those hot summer days! Thanks for sharing.

  15. This looks so beautiful and even sounds beautiful! Even though I struggle with my one lone rosebush, I'm going to try this! Thank you for sharing such a lovely and different drink recipe. Catherine, hope you have a wonderful holiday!

  16. Oooo…this sounds so very nice! I would love to give this one a try!

  17. It is super hot out here in AZ this week, this drink would be awesome.

  18. Hi Tammy, great posting. Thank for sharing the refreshing drink, look good! Hope to see you soon. :)

    Have a nice week ahead.

  19. You really meant rose water - I would love to try that. sandie

  20. So fun to see Tammy here again!!! What a vibrant delicious version of iced tea! I'm sure we'll be heating up again soon...and I'll be sure to make myself a pitcher :)

  21. Lovely idea. The roses are blooming profusely in the garden and it's hot today, so this sounds ideal. Sadly no pool or A/C unit - perhaps the fish pond in the shade of a Japanese maple will do.

  22. sounds interesting Tammy, when you say add a white teabag do you mean English breakfast tea?? I don't like iced tea so if that is the case then I don't think I would like this, but I think I may have it wrong as the drink it such a pretty pink colour and I think a teabag would make it black so I would love to know.

  23. I have the Rose Petals and Tea, will be making a pitcher of this tea and heading to the porch. Have a fantastic week and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
