Ingredients

  • 48 ounces water
  • 3 tablespoons hibiscus flowers (organically grown)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1 small orange, sliced
  • Ice
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Directions

Bring water to light boil, turn off heat add the hibiscus flowers and cinnamon sticks. Cover and steep for 20 minutes.

Strain tea into desired container, add sugar and orange slices and serve over ice. Garnish each glass with a lemon slice.

Chef Notes: This tea recipe can easily be doubled for a larger serving. When using herbs in tea making, longer is not better. Heating the herbs for extended time can release unfavorable qualities and bitterness found in herbs. The key is to add MORE herbs to strengthen flavor.
