What can you tell me about rosebud tea? Can you make a tea from rosebuds?

You may be referring to 'rosehip' tea, rather than rosebud tea. Rosehips form on the plant when the flowers are left on after the petals fall. The ripened ovary (the part just beneath the petals) will swell and turn red or orange. These hips are cut from the plant and used for making tea. Rosehips are high in vitamin C.
