Anyway, here is a close up of the red rose bud I got. We actually bought these from Sapa, Vietnam. They cost us SGD6 for 200g after bargaining. In HCM market, they were selling it for SGD6 for 100g. I still don't know what is a good price for these. When we bought them from the market, the lady gave me one bud to smell. I put it in my sweeter pocket through out my trip and smell it ever so often. It was so lovely. I gave a petal to some aborigine tribe lady who keep following around. She told me these were used to soothe the tummy. I just love the scent of it.
So I am trying to put 5 buds into a pack, meant for one cup consumption. I am rather happy that I can finally use my pink Taiwan tea container for what it was always meant to be used for - Rose Tea! Now just waiting for the right moment to savour this sweet smelling tea.
