🌹Ingredients

This drink may look fancy, but the ingredients are simple. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Rose Petals – Rose petals aren’t just tasty. Rose-infused drinks are great for sipping on during cold and flu season because they are full of immune-boosting antioxidants. You can use dry or fresh petals. If using fresh petals, we recommend using twice the amount.
  • Loose Leaf Chai Tea – Chai is a rich and full-bodied Indian tea blend of black tea leaves and sweet, warming herbs and spices. Its robust flavor pairs perfectly with delicate rose petals.
  • Milk – You can make your latte with whole milk or a milk alternative. Oat milk, coconut milk, and cashew milk are great dairy-free latte options if you happen to have a plant-based Barista blend, even better!
  • Recommended Equipment – You’ll need a saucepan or small pot to boil the water and a tea infuser.

📖 How to make a rose petal chai tea latte (step-by-step photos)

1️⃣ Step One: Warm milk

In a small saucepan, bring the milk to a boil over medium-high heat. Let simmer, but keep an eye on the pot as milk tends to boil over.

2️⃣ Step Two: Infuse rose petals and tea

Add chai tea and rose petals to a tea infuser, and then place the infuser into the simmering milk for 2 3 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the tea and rose petals continue to steep for 5 to 7 minutes.

👉 Questions + quick tips

  • Make it sweeter – Give your latte a taste after steeping. If you prefer a sweeter drink, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of maple syrup, honey, simple syrup, or brown sugar syrup at a time until it’s sweetened to your liking.
  • Fresh vs. dried rose petals – We used dried rose petals. You should be able to find them in the bulk tea section. You can also make your latte with fresh petals. If using fresh petals, use twice the amount, and be sure to use rose petals specifically for culinary purposes.
What types of flower petals are good in tea lattes?

In addition to rose petals, lavender, hibiscus, lotus, passionfruit, and mint flowers are great options.

Can you put rose petals in coffee?

Yes! Brew your fresh ground coffee beans with a scoop of ground rose petals to add soft, sweet, and floral notes to your morning cup.

Is there caffeine in a rose tea latte?

Loose-leaf chai tea blends usually contain black tea leaves containing caffeine. Alternately, you can make a decaf rose tea latte by swapping out the chai for loose-leaf chamomile tea.

☕ How to serve

To make your rose petal latte extra special, check out these serving ideas.

  • Make a pink rose tea latte – Make a vibrant pink drink by steeping the milk with tea, rose petals, and beetroot powder. Another option is steeping a 1/4 cup of frozen raspberries or strawberries in the milk with the tea and petals.
  • Cold foam – Add a creamy layer of vegan cold foam to the top.
  • Garnishes – Garnish with pieces of rose petals and a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Food coloring – If making it pink is an afterthought, you can stir in a drop or two of red food coloring at the end.

♻️ How to store

Store extras in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheating will weaken the flavors and aromas, so the best way to enjoy your rose latte the second time around is over ice.
