Hibiscus Flower Tea
To make hibiscus tea, just add a few teaspoons – or whatever quantity is right for you – to a teapot. Then fill with boiling water and let sit for four or five minutes. You can also use the flower in a variety of cold drinks. Pairs well with spearmint and lemon.
A Bit of History
All the varieties of the hibiscus tree originated in lands close to the Equator. Explorers brought the beautiful hibiscus to Europe in the 1700s and, most likely, to North American from there.
