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

  1. Bring water to light boil, turn off heat add the hibiscus flowers and cinnamon sticks. Cover and steep for 20 minutes.
  2. Strain tea into desired container, add sugar and orange slices and serve over ice. Garnish each glass with a lemon slice.
