Instructions

  • In order to prepare this hibiscus beverage, begin by adding three to four flowers to each cup of tea. In order to make two cups of tea, I used eight flowers.
  • The calyx, which is the green part of the plant that the flower is attached to, should be removed during flowering.

 

  • It is also necessary to remove the stamen, which is the component that the yellow seeds are attached to.
  • Make sure the petals are thoroughly cleaned under running water, and then place them in a glass bowl of a medium size.

  • Take three cups of water and bring it to a boil in a saucepan of medium size. Once the water reaches a full boil, remove it from the source of heat.
  • The petals should be sprinkled with the boiling water. Keep the bowl covered and allow the colour that was imparted by the flowers to permeate the water. Prepare for ten to twelve minutes.

 

  • Through the use of a tea strainer, strain the tea. Mix it thoroughly after adding lime juice to it.
  • Honey or sugar can be added at this point if you so desire, and the mixture should be thoroughly combined.

Notes

  • In the event that you are pregnant or taking any hormonal medication, you should not consume hibiscus tea.
  • If your blood pressure is at a low level, you should not drink this tea.

 

  • It is also possible to make this tea with dried hibiscus flowers rather than fresh ones of the same species.
  • Make sure to keep this fact in mind when you are preparing this tea because hibiscus leaves leave stains.

  • Hibiscus that has been dried can be purchased online. These dried flowers are also available at the majority of Mexican stores. So make sure to look in the Spanish section of the grocery store.
  • The flowers of the hibiscus plant can be steeped in water, and the resulting beverage can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days. After the dish is ready to be served, add honey and lemon juice, and then serve.
