I love to make and drink this. So refreshing. Thanks for the recipe.
I've been lucky enough to visit both Mexico and Bali over the last year and learned to appreciate chilled hibiscus tea in both places. My kids love this recipe which makes a strong purple drink that reminds me of cranberry juice. In Bali, they drink it very diluted so the flavor is delicate and they add a little lemon juice, which magically changes the color to light pink, like pink lemonade. It also stretches the flowers a little farther, much appreciated here where they are hard to get and a little pricey.
Tart and refreshing. Trivia: Hibiscus puts the "zing" in the Celestial Seasonings brand "Zinger" teas.
I have made this for years and it's one of my favorite drinks on a hot day. It has a remarkably fruity taste, not like normal herbal tea at all.
I drink it often, It has diuretic properties and helps to lose weight.
My DH and I love this tea. We were introduced to it in Mexico, where they call it Jamaica tea. Thanks Molly!
