7 Best flower teas to try today

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. 

Flower teas fall in a category of Herbals (as they are flowering herbs) or some may put them in a category of edible flowers. They are not only beautiful to look at but also offer many health benefits. From calming the mind to aiding digestion, these teas are a perfect way to unwind and relax. 

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.

Rose tea is an aromatic herbal beverage made from rose petals, buds of rose flowers or large whole Rose blooms.  It’s known to offer numerous health benefits. A study of 12 rose cultivars found the phenol content and antioxidant activity of rose tea to be equal to or greater than those of green tea (4). 

Rose tea is particularly rich in gallic acid. This antioxidant compound accounts for 10–55% of the tea’s total phenol content and is known to have anticancer, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects. 

The Rose tea is also rich in anthocyanins, which comprise up to 10% of its total phenol content. These are colored pigments that are associated with good urinary tract and eye health, improved memory, healthy aging, and a lower risk of some cancers (414151617).

That said, not all rose teas are created equal. Before you purchase any flower teas make sure you know where it is from first and how it's cultivated.
