Delicious as tea or cordial

Made the most delicious tea, added some honey (you could use maple syrup/agave instead) and a couple drops fresh lemon juice. Placed rest of cupful in fridge; the MOST delicious cold tea/cordial! I also made tissane from the edible rose petals which made the purest tasting rose tissane that I have ever tasted; plus all the goodness! Having a good day ☺️
