Among all the edible flowers in Yunnan, roses are the favorite among local people. Flower cakes, a famous specialty of Yunnan, is made of roses. 

Roses contain multivitamins and tannin, which help nourish skin, improve digestion and adjust incretion. Roses can also be drunk as tea. They release strong aroma and keep people in good mood.
