I used raw sugar, lavender tea, and dried lavender, and the syrup is exquisite.

Made this to use in another recipe requiring rose syrup, & it worked very well! Used what I needed there, then took a hint from Sharon's review & added the rest to some ice tea! Thanks, much!

This was easy to make! I didn't have food coloring so added about a tbls. of grape jelly to give it a light pink color. I put this in some lemonade and will add it to my iced tea too! Thanks Rita!
