I’ve seen rose mallows in many gardens nearby, but I thought they were just ordinary beautiful flowers with no distinctive scent. I found them so ordinary that I would even ignore them. Only when mom II sent me a bag of dried rose mallows, did I realize its importance. As a teacher, I often complain about an irritation in my throat. Although I always have a bottle of water with me to keep drinking during class, I have that problem mostly at the end of the day. Knowing this, mom II sent me these dried rose mallows, which she herself dried, telling me to boil a few of them a couple of minutes and drink its tea. She said that rose mallow tea is a remedy for throat problems and cough. I will absoultely try it. However, I love their wrinkled texture so much that I can’t decide whether to use them as a decoration in my home or to drink!
You may have talked about edible flowers several times, how about flower tea? Do you know any other flowers that we can make tea from?
