A tart drink and very colorful. Add some to regular tea instead of lemon juice. You can make this overnight by placing a handful of blossoms into a pitcher of spring water. They expand a lot, so be sure to squeeze then out if you remove them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place blossoms in a teacup Cover with boiling water.
  2. When cool enough to taste, add sugar if desired.
  3. Garnish with mint.

This made a nice, soothing nighttime tea! I didn't have fresh mint, but did put some dried peppermint in with the hibiscus flowers. Thanks Kath!

Hibiscus tea is one of my favorite teas. I usually buy a rosehip/hibiscus blend. The rosehip for the vitiman C and hibiscus for its blood pressure regulating powers. I really like the tart flavor from this tea. I usually drink it hot without sugar. But I did enjoy this iced today found it really refreshing. A nice drink to take along to the beach this summer. Thank you.
