Make healthy herbal Hibiscus tea with freshly picked flower petals for a refreshing drink that is high in Vitamin C and helps with weight-loss, anxiety, depression, high-blood pressure and so much more. Add lemon and see how the colour changes to the most beautiful pink. Like magic.
Pick fresh hibiscus flowers.
Pull all the petals from the flowers.
Rinse well in water to remove any dust, bugs or impurities.
Boil the kettle and add boiling water over the fresh petals. Let it steep for 10 minutes. The petals will change from red to yellow.
Remove all the yellow petals. Don't steep the flowers for longer than 10 minutes or the tea will become quite bitter.
You can drink the tea hot or cold. If you want an ice-tea, then add the tea to a few ice cubes.
Add freshly squeezed lemon and see how the colour magically changes to a beautiful pink!
Drink and enjoy!
