Before we select what might be the best flower teas let's talk about what makes something the "best" first so you know the rules. In this blog post we'll be doing a deep dive to understand what it means to be the word's Best Flower Teas.
Teas are much like wine in a sense that TERROIR is really important when it comes to Quality, Aroma, Tasting notes and in particular for teas there is another element of Nutrients.
What does TERROIR mean? Terroir, mainly contain four things: Climate, Soil quality, Terrain (other flora, elevation, slope), and Method (how they are grown/how experienced are the growers and producers). The combination of these aforementioned elements combined make something the BEST.

In selecting these 7 best flower teas we also considered their popularity and availability. All pure flower teas are naturally caffeine free unless it's blended with green tea, black tea or other traditional caffeinated leaf tea that's from the plant of Camellia sinensis.
1. Rose Tea
Roses have been used for cultural and medicinal purposes for thousands of years around the world. The rose family has over 130 species and thousands of cultivars. All roses are edible and can be used in tea, but some varieties are sweet while others are more bitter (1). In addition, NOT all roses are grown as food grade to be ingested as a tea such as cut roses are for decor and are grown for decor only. Decor roses are usually full of pesticides or pests. We do NOT recommend using decor roses are rose teas.
