DIRECTIONS

  • Pour boiling water over hibiscus flowers or teabags.
  • Let steep about 30 minutes. Hibiscus looks so pretty as the purplish dried leaves turn the water deep red.
  • Strain into ice to speed up cooling.
  • Serve chilled with chunks of freshly cut pineapple. You can leave the pineapple out of the drink if you like, but it's so good and cold, don't leave it out!
  • If you like, mix equal parts lemonade with the tea. Yum.
