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.
- 2 -5 dried hibiscus flowers (in local Hispanic stores)
- 6 -8 ounces boiling water
- sugar, to taste (optional)
- mint sprig (optional)
- Place blossoms in a teacup Cover with boiling water.
- When cool enough to taste, add sugar if desired.
- 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.
