This is a tarty-sweet tea which first timers might find pretty sharp. However, it is easy to get used to the flavor and before long your palate will have a craving for it.
The tea itself is made from the sepals of the hibiscus flower (Hibiscus sabdariffa).
Hibiscus tea has been a popular drink in many parts of the world, including the Caribbean and South and Central America. Referred to as Flor De Jamaica in Latin America, the tea is normally prepared by boiling with ginger and later adding sweetener - a fortifying cup indeed!
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS: Use freshly boiled water to steep half a tea spoon for a cup. Steep for at least 3 minutes. Use more tea if you prefer a stronger liquor. Sweetener like honey or agave may be used.
For packaging I use heat sealed foil pouches. This preserves the flavor of the tea longer. The pouch also has resealable zip for your convenience.
