Here’s How to Make Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus tea is a popular, fragrant and refreshing, herbal tea that is packed with powerful health benefits. Here is how to make your own hibiscus tea.

Things You Will Need

  • 2 tsp of dried hibiscus flower petals
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • Optional: honey and lemon (for sweetening and flavor)


  • Start by bringing a pot of water to a full boil. It is important to use boiled water, as the water temperature will directly influence the flavor of your tea.
  • Once the water has come to a boil, add 2 tsp of dried hibiscus flower petals.
  • Lower the heat and let it simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  • Once the tea is finished, strain the petals and add in any sweeteners or flavorings you would like. Honey and lemon work great for this.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  • Storing Tips: Make sure to store your unused hibiscus flower petals in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
  • Tea Flavor: If you find the tea too bitter, try adding more honey or lemon.
  • Brewing Time: Hibiscus tea should be brewed for no more than 4 minutes, as it can become bitter if over-brewed.
