Flower Sugars

I wasn’t originally a tea lover. The tea I grew up with was 3 years expired Lipton to make Southern Sweet Tea. After being introduced to Raven Moon Emporium, my love for tea has wildly grown with every one I try. I know that my need for Sweet Tea hasn’t left my veins because I prefer to add any sugar I can find into my teas. From honey to coffee creamer, I will find something to sweeten up my cup. I have recently discovered a pleasing add-in called flower sugar! These sound fancy, but they’re incredibly easy to make.

Note: These are not the same as infused sugar because the flower isn’t sifted out the sugar. With infused sugar, you will only use the sugar and it takes 3 weeks for the flower’s flavor to incorporate. You can use flower sugars ASAP.

The Recipe!

Note: You can try LavenderRed Roses, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, or any edible flower that you choose. Substitute dried flowers for fresh, but make sure to tale off the hips and stems.
