Hibiscus tea

"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."

    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.

Because I'm a nibbler and like to have many foods to choose from, I generally buy most things fresh and don't cook large amounts at a time.
