Hibiscus Flower Tea
The floral and delicious hibiscus, is more then an edible flower. It’s high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. 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 hibiscus in a variety of cold drinks and cocktails. 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 America from there.
