Botany and History of Rose Buds Tea
Roses are woody, perennial, flowering plants of the Rosa genus belonging to the Rosaceae family. Rose Buds, in particular, consist of four or five petals, with each petal divided into two distinct lobes.
According to archaeological evidence, cultivation first took place some 5,000 years ago. However, long before human intervention, it had existed for around 35 million years.
The 15th century was a noteworthy moment in its history. This was when the flower symbolised two factions fighting for the throne of England. The House of York recognised the white rose as its emblem.
The House of Lancaster, meanwhile, used the red rose. The resulting conflict became known as The War of the Roses (1455-1487). Today, people use them less for battles and more for Tea!
Rose Bud Tea Calories
But how will it affect your waistline? The good news is that it is practically calorie-free and, as a result, is an excellent choice among those looking to cut down their intake.
Evidence suggests that it also boosts the metabolism of fat cells, enabling the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently - more on that later. What needs to be addressed now is whether it’ll help you get out of bed in the morning.
Is There Caffeine in Rose Bud Flower Tea?
An estimated sixty plants contain caffeine, a stimulating chemical compound that, when consumed, provides an energy boost. Tea from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant is one of them, as is Coffee from the Coffea plant.
But Roses don’t belong to the caffeinated family. This makes Rose Buds Tea a caffeine-free infusion as much as it is an (almost) calorie-free infusion.
Rose Bud Tea Nutrition
What it lacks in caffeine, it makes up for in nutritional value. It contains high levels of polyphenols, which are antioxidants capable of combating numerous chronic conditions.
Also within its petals is gallic acid. This compound has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. But before discussing in-depth Rose Bud Tea benefits, it’s essential to know how to make Rose Bud Tea.

This is particularly helpful for those living with acne, eczema and rosacea. It even has anti-ageing properties capable of diminishing wrinkles!
Rose Bud Tea for PCOS
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. The condition causes infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, as well as excess androgen levels.
While Rose Bud Tea can’t alleviate symptoms altogether, research indicates that it at least reduces pain. One study from Taiwan found that those who drank it twice daily for six menstrual cycles experienced relief.
Rose Bud Tea Pregnancy
Can you drink Rose Bud Tea during pregnancy? It would appear you can do so in moderation. The primary concern is that its abundance in Vitamin C might lead to Rose Bud Tea side effects such as diarrhoea, nausea, headaches and heartburn.
Therefore, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company urge you to seek medical consultation should you have any issues.
