Jamaican Hibiscus Iced Tea

I had this tea one afternoon in the city. It tastes great, it is rich in vitamin C, is refreshing and there is a natural tartness from the flower petals.

If you can find the flower petals, give it a try...you won't be sorry.

I think that hibiscus tea bags would work also in this recipe.

Cooling and Chilling time is not included

Ingredients

2 c
water
1/4 c
hibiscus, edible flower, fresh or dried
1/4 c
sugar cane, raw
1 1/2 c
cold water
1/8 c
white sugar (or to taste)
2 tsp
lime juice
1
lime, thinly sliced (garnish)

Step-By-Step

1Be careful -- Hibiscus has the potential to stain just about anything it comes in contact with. Pick a pot that won't stain.
2In an old pot bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
3Remove the pot from heat and add the dried flowers and sugar.
4Steep with the lid on for 10 minutes, stirring once or twice.
5Make sure sugar has dissolved.
6Pour the mixture through a strainer into a pitcher, being careful not to spill the tea, as it will stain.
7Add 1 1/2 cups of cold water and lime juice to the pitcher.
8Taste and if necessary adjust, sugar or water as needed to sweeten or to weaken the flavor.
9Cool completely on counter, chill and serve in large glasses with plenty of ice and garnished with a lime slice.
