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.

This is a great fresh tea. I did leave out the anise seed and only used 4 cardamom pods, as 5 seemed too much for such a small serving. I loved the rose water in here. I think that is where the Love tea comes in. The smell of this potion was divine! Made and reviewed for the recipe of the day in the Comfort Cafe - Thanks! :)

Oh! Yes Love Tea. I enjoyed this lightly sweetened and lightly flavored tea. There are lots of flavors but made subtle with little steeping time. I used fresh mint and garnished with fresh lemongrass. Made for comfort cafe. Thanks for the comort.
