This rose latte is perfect for spring and almost too pretty to drink! Almost.
This latte has a distinct floral flavor and aroma from the rose petals and rose water. It’s slightly sweet and deliciously creamy from the oat milk. It’s also caffeine-free so it can be enjoyed at any time of day.
The rose flavor and aroma make this drink really unique. It would be great served at brunch or an afternoon tea.
You can also make it for yourself and take some time for self-care. Curl up on with a good book or your favorite TV show and sip on this latte and relax.
I love going out to my local coffee shop for lattes, but they are easy to make at home and taste just as good (if not better!).
This gorgeous rose latte comes together with just a few ingredients.
Water: Water is used for brewing the tea. For best results, use filtered or bottled water.
Dried culinary-grade rose petals: High-quality petals are used to make the tea. Rose petals add a signature aroma and a slightly sweet, yet tart flavor to the tea.
We used rose petals for this recipe for a delicate flavor but if you’d prefer a stronger-tasting tea, you can swap the rose petals for a white tea rose petal blend.
Oat milk: This milk is used in this recipe for a plant-based milk option. I love using oat milk in lattes because it’s creamy and has a slightly-sweet, nutty flavor.
Oat milk is thicker and creamier than other plant-based milks and lends a richer flavor so it works well in hot beverages.
Rose water: This lightly scented water smells just like roses and heightens the aroma and floral flavor of this rose latte.
Rose water is made by steeping rose petals in water, but store-bought versions are strong, so a little bit goes a long way. Just 2 teaspoons create a lovely floral essence and unique flavor.
Rose water is commonly used in middle-eastern cuisine and is used in both sweet and savory dishes.
Vanilla extract: Vanilla pairs well with the rose-flavor. The extract also increases the aroma and flavor depth of this latte.
Maple syrup: A little sugar is used to make this latte perfectly sweet.
This rose latte looks fancy, but it’s easy to make and ready in under 15 minutes. Here’s how to make it:
Heat the water until boiling in a tea kettle or small pot. Fill a tea infuser with 2 teaspoons rose petals.
Place the infuser in a mug or heat-safe glass cup.
Pour the heated water into the mug and allow the tea to steep for 10 minutes. If you’d like a stronger-tasting tea, you may swap the rose petals for a white tea rose petal blend.
While the tea is infusing, pour the milk, rose water, vanilla extract, and maple syrup into a stainless-steel pitcher.
Froth with a milk frother until foamy.
Remove the infuser from the hot water, and distribute the rose tea into the two mugs or glass cups.
Top with frothed milk, and garnish with remaining rose petals.
