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

2 c
water
1/4 c
hibiscus, edible flower, fresh or dried

cold water

white sugar (or to taste)
2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Be careful -- Hibiscus has the potential to stain just about anything it comes in contact with. Pick a pot that won't stain.

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