Rose Petal Tea

This is one of my favorite Summertime Recipes.
1- go outside and pull all the petals off of your roses. Not the beautiful ones; the ones that you should probably cut off but can't bear to just yet because they still look good from far away.

2- put them in a strainer and rinse them with cold water

3-put them into a 1 gallon pitcher and add 1/2 cup sugar

4- pour 1/2 gallon of hot water over the petals and allow to steep for 10-15 minutes

5- pour it all through a strainer again to catch the leaves. if you're having trouble with little floaties, use a coffee filter to catch them.

6- fill the pitcher the rest of the way full with ice and stir until the ice is almost melted.

See if anyone can guess what flavor it is.

BONUS- add a few sprigs of mint to the petals, yummm
