Rose Infused Panna Cotta is perfectly light, silky, and creamy with the perfect subtle rose taste and faint floral aroma.
I just returned from China last weekend. I was surprised to find a wide variety of tea there. China is famous as the birthplace of tea, which mostly comes from the Chinese Camelia sinensis tea plant. Nonetheless, there were actually a lot of flower varieties drunk as tea.
I stumbled upon these beautiful dried rose buds, known as mei gui hua (玫瑰花) in China. It was not expensive, I got this one for 10 Yuan for a small package like the picture below. You can also found dried rose buds sold online.
It is fascinating that Chinese people use rose buds as medicinal edible food with many health benefits, especially for women. Being quite fragrant and mild in nature, they are ideal for regulating Qi and blood, improving blood circulation to reduce menstrual discomforts, reducing anxiety, improving skin complexion, and moisture.

How to Make Rose Infused Panna Cotta
Rose Infused Panna Cotta is a silky, rich, and creamy vanilla panna cotta with a unique and delicate rose flavor. It includes very few basic ingredients. It is basically a simple mixture of rose-infused milk and cream, sugar, vanilla, as well as gelatin to set the mixture and create a custard-like consistency. You make this dessert just like making the classic panna cotta, but with an extra step of steeping the rose buds though.
Despite the rose infusion, this dessert is perfectly light with a subtle rose taste and faint floral aroma. Together they do not have a strong flavor, therefore allowing us to appreciate the subtlety of this rose infusion. It is the perfect post-dinner dessert, as well as a great substitute for your afternoon cup of tea. Rose Infused Panna Cotta is definitely a dessert I would like to indulge in to relax from stress.
