It’s pink, beautiful and it smells amazing! This rose latte recipe is made from rose petals and doesn’t use store bought rosewater like many other recipes. The petals on their own won’t make the latte as pink as you see on the photo, but when you add a pinch of my secret ingredient, it will do the trick. You can certainly skip it but your latte will look WAY prettier if you add it, plus it’s natural and super healthy!

I drink a tea latte every single morning. It’s the only time when I’ll have tea with milk (always non-dairy because of personal preferences). If I have a busy morning, didn’t sleep well or before working out I will choose a Matcha latte because of the boosting effect, but other mornings I’ll go with different teas or even herbals (look into My Favorites, to find teas that work great as lattes). One of my favorite herbal lattes for a non-caffeinated morning drink is this rose latte recipe.

Using Rose Petals
Another plus of this rose latte recipe besides how delicious it tastes, is that roses also have many beneficial herbal properties which you would be getting with this latte.
Did you know that you can use fresh or dried petals to make rose water, or even this tea? Always make sure you wash any fresh herb/flower you’ll be using thoroughly and use pesticide free petals. The basic rule on how to use fresh vs. dried herbs/flowers in recipes is if the recipe calls for 1 tbsp of dried rose petals, use twice the amount of fresh ones. If you want to buy dried rose petals but don’t really know what to do with so many of them, read about the many other uses you can use them for! I always recommend to go for reputable sellers when buying herbs, roots, flowers & bark like Starwest Botanicals or Mountain Rose Herbs.

This rose latte recipe has only 4 ingredients and it’s super healthy! I’m sure you’ll want to surprise many people with your new drink once you master it. It’s an easy and delicious recipe, perfect for the whole family because it is caffeine free.
My preferred steeping teaware when making single servings is this Teapot, which is the same as the one in the video. It lets the leaves (or petals in this case) ‘dance’ liberally and optimizes extraction. I definitely recommend it because it’s my to-go tea maker for 1.
The secret ingredient for my rose latte recipe is beetroot powder. It’s natural, healthy and it’s what gives this latte a beautiful color. It’s rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. You don’t HAVE to use beetroot powder if you don’t want to, but I definitely recommend it! The link is for the exact same one I always use.
