This is delicious! I was nervous that the rose and orange blossom waters would be overpowering, but the flavours were quite well balanced. By the time I got to the bottom of the cup, I did find the flower waters to be a little potent for my tastes, and I'll probably halve them next time. While I generally don't sweeten my tea, the honey was really wonderful here. I used dried lemongrass, dehydrated ginger slices, and 3 bags of mint tea, while otherwise following the recipe as directed.
