How to Make Hibiscus Flower Tea
Hibiscus flower tea is a delicious, caffeine-free tea with a tart flavor. Brewing hibiscus tea is easy, and there are a few different methods you can use to create your perfect cup.
What You’ll Need
- Hibiscus flowers (either dried petals or whole flowers)
- Honey (optional)
Step 1: Make a Tea Bag
The easiest way to make hibiscus tea is to put the dried petals in a tea bag. Brew one petal-filled tea bag per cup. For a stronger flavor, you can also add a small handful of whole flowers to the tea bag.
Step 2: Bring Water to a Boil
Once the tea bag is ready, heat the water to a rolling boil. If you’re making multiple cups, use one cup of water per tea bag. If you’d like a less tangy flavor, use boiling water that has cooled for a minute or two.
Step 3: Let It Brew
Now it’s time to steep the tea. Pour the hot water into cups and drop the bag in. Let it brew for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the strength you prefer.
If you are using whole flowers instead of a tea bag, you can put the flowers directly in the cups and pour the hot water on top of them. Let them steep for 8 to 10 minutes, or longer for a stronger flavor.
Step 4: Enjoy!
Once the tea is done brewing, you can enjoy it as is, or add a little bit of honey for some extra sweetness.
