Valentine’s Day: rose petals

Bored of the traditional Valentine’s Day gifts? How about Steenbergs rose petals? Deliciously fragrant and lasting longer than cut flowers, they can be used in recipes and tea to make a long-lasting present.

So imagine organic rose petals and hand blended them with tea, spices and sugar to create a collection of scented goodies steeped in ancient traditions.

“We love hand-blending this sugar,” says Sophie Steenberg. “You get the wonderful bright damask colours from the deep pink rose petals, then the smell – oh the smell is just heaven.”

Well known for their delicious hand-blended loose leaf teas, one of the most popular blends is Rose & Bergamot Tea – a light brewing beautiful floral tea made with Ceylon and Chinese teas. Evocative of classical Persia, the blend is tea and damask rose with hints of orange blossom. Steenbergs has also added rose petals to its popular Earl Grey to create organic Earl Grey with Rose, a perfumed afternoon tea, reminiscent of grand Regency tea parties. Whilst Steenbergs Rose Pekoe Tea is an aromatic black tea that has been naturally flavoured with delicate rose petals and is one of the oldest, traditional flavoured teas from China.  The teas are also available in a gift pack containing a classic tea tin, a Steenbergs signature mug and a heart shaped tea infuser.

We personally love Steenbergs Organic Harissa With Rosea spicy red hot chilli blend from North Africa, with a twist of organic rose petals – perfect for chicken. The popular spice blend Ras-al-hanut  has been hand-blended by Axel Steenberg, co-founder of Steenbergs Organic with his wife Sophie.
