How to make Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus tea is a refreshing beverage that has a tart, cranberry-like flavor and vibrant ruby-red color. First of all, let’s go over what you’ll need:


  • 2 teaspoons hibiscus flower or tea
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • Optional: sweetener such as sugar, honey, or stevia

Once you have collected your ingredients, it’s time to make the tea. Here’s what to do:

  1. Add the hibiscus to a mug. You can use either loose-leaf or pre-bagged tea. If you are using loose leaf, add 2 teaspoons of it to the mug.
  2. Pour the boiling water over the hibiscus. Make sure the boiling water is hot, but not boiling. This will help to extract the flavor and color of the hibiscus.
  3. Steep for 5 minutes. Allow it to steep for 5 minutes, or until the water takes on a deep ruby color.
  4. Strain the tea. If you used loose-leaf tea, you will want to strain out the tea leaves before drinking. If you used pre-bagged tea, you can leave them in the bottom of the mug.
  5. Add a sweetener if desired. You can add sugar, honey, stevia, or any other sugar-like sweetener if you would like to sweeten the tea.
  6. Enjoy. Let your tea cool for a few minutes before sipping and enjoy. You can also add ice to make a cold hibiscus tea.

And that’s it! You now have a delicious and refreshing hibiscus tea. So grab a mug and get to brewing, and enjoy this tasty beverage.
