Makes two cups

  • 1/4 cup dried crushed hibiscus petals
  • Sugar/sweetener or honey to taste
  • 2 cups boiling water

How to Make

You will need a teapot in which to make your tea.

Add the crushed petals to the teapot using one of the following methods:

  • Put the leaves directly in to your teapot and then add boiling water. Once brewed use a strainer to catch the petal residue when pouring out the tea
  • Add the petals to an infuser ball, then add this to your teapot before adding the boiling water
  • Use a teapot with a built in strainer or infuser. This is the most convenient in my opinion.

Allow the brew to infuse for 5 minutes before pouring in to teacups. Adding a spoon of lime juice will change the colour and add some zing in the process!

Add sweetener to taste and enjoy.

Note: In the summer this makes a refreshing drink if allowed to cool. Pour over ice cubes and add mint leaves for flavour and appearance.
