    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    This tangy and sweet beverage is found all over Egypt, but is especially popular with street vendors. From Party By the Pyramids. NOTES: Dried hibiscus flowers can be found at specialty food stores and at Latin and Caribbean markets, where they are called sorrel or flor de Jamaica.

      I love Hibiscus Tea and this recipe does not disappoint, quick and super easy to make. It was a very pretty dark purple color, very flavorful and smooth. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. It is wonderful served with ice, but best when chilled. I added Del Monte's Tropical Fruit Juice to some for my granddaughter and she loved it, as did I. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will use again.

      Delicious! I think the amount of hibiscus could be reduced or just plan on resteeping to get the most out of them. I steeped them twice with no reduction in strength. The 3rd steeping was weak so I added some black tea leaves & made hibiscus iced tea. :) Made for Welcome to Egypt in the NA/ME Forum 5/12.

      I steeped 3 ounces of hibiscus in hot water with Lavender Sugar With Vanilla. Then added 1/2 to a pitcher filled with ice adding additional cold water. Sorry just getting to the review long overdue. Thanks!!!
