Hibiscus Tea
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4 cups
  • ½ c packed hibiscus tea
  • 4 c filtered, warm water
  • ½ lime
  • Optional: sweetener, ginger/cinnamon/etc
  1. To dry your own hibiscus, pick untreated/organic flowers.
  2. Peel the petals off then rinse and pat them dry.
  3. You can dry them in the sun in a single layer or use a dehydrator.
  4. In my dehydrator, they take 45-60 minutes for 4 trays.
  5. Steep ½ cup for 20 minutes {with ginger/cinnamon/etc if using.} For a stronger taste, use more tea versus brewing for longer so they don't get bitter. You can also allow the sun to heat it for 6-12 hours.
  6. Sweeten if desired and take warm or chill in the fridge. I like to infuse with fruit.
