Loose Leaf Rose Tea
Sensual… Indulgent… Uplifting…
So What’s the Backstory on Roses?
Nearly every gal swoons when her fella gets her a beautiful bouquet of roses. And apparently it’s been the same throughout history. For a long time, roses have had a connection to love. For example:
- In ancient Greece and Rome, roses symbolized devotion to Aphrodite/Venus, the goddess of love.
- Cleopatra filled her rooms with fresh rose petals as part of her plan to seduce Marc Antony. She wanted him to remember the opulence and to think of her every time he smelled a rose. (Note: I think the plan worked…)
- During the Victorian Era, restrictive social taboos prevented a lot of open conversation. So, people used roses and different flowers to communicate secret messages. For more about Victorian floriography, head here!
What’s the Meaning of Different Colored Roses?
Different colored roses represent different kinds of love (Source: ProFlowers):
- Red roses = romantic love
- Yellow roses = friendship
- Pink roses = gratitude
- White roses = love within a marriage, or new beginnings
- Orange roses = passion
