i don't know if it's the recipe or my rosebuds. this was so weak before adding ice & soda water, i couldn't detect rose flavor at all. :( I added more rosebuds, which i purchased at a tea shop, to very little avail. i am so sad because i was so looking forward to using the roses and enjoying a tasty refreshing beverage. again, not sure if it's the recipe or my rosebuds. made for My 3 Chefs 6/12.
