Instructions for brewing: 1 teaspoon per cup for a hot brew (150ml). Pour hot (80°C) water on the leaves, not the other way around. Steep for a couple of minutes.
When is the best time to drink this tea? On hot, humid afternoons, a cooling cup of Hibiscus tea is in order. Sip warm Hibiscus tea throughout the day if you feel like you’re getting a cold. If you like to start your day with a strong cup of tea, avoid mornings. This zesty, citrus tea is ideal for brightening up gloomy afternoons and early evenings.
Serve with a light green salad, avocado, and pineapple sweets as a side dish. Anything containing chocolate should be avoided. It’s delicious either hot or cold. In Jamaica, hibiscus is a popular iced tea. Agua de Jamaica is another name for the same thing.
Advice for storage: Keep in the foil pouch in the tea tin or transfer to an airtight container and store in a cool, dark area.
Pack in small sealed packets or jars for storing in the refrigerator or freezer. To avoid condensation, allow the tea to cool to room temperature before using. After opening, each package should be used within a week.
