    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.
