This is easy to make with yummy results. I got my hibiscus flowers from my bulk heath food store. This turns a beautiful red color! Adapted from Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello.

I couldn't find hibiscus, so I went with Rooibos (red tea). Very pretty colors, and I just loved all the citrus flavors. The cinnamon was a little strong for my tastes, so I'll probably reduce the amount next time, but this is a great refreshing tea.
