The Hibiscus plant is known for its stunning crimson color and a tart, cranberry-like flavor that some find similar to lemonade. With more antioxidants than green tea, steep the dried petals in hot or cold water to make beautiful, healthy, and delicious tea. Not just for tea, you can use the petals in a simple syrup for beautiful scarlet red cocktails. If you enjoy experimenting with new flavors in savory dishes, try steeping 1 cup of dried petals with coarse black peppercorns and smashed garlic cloves. After 30 minutes, add 1/4 cup of sugar, drain, and you have a wonderful marinade for lamb!
1 ounce of dried petals make 12 cups of tea
