Hibiscus tea is a refreshing and flavorful drink full of antioxidants, vitamin C, and other essential nutrients. Making tea from hibiscus flowers is easy, and this guide will walk you through it step-by-step.

What You’ll Need

  • Hibiscus flowers (dried or fresh)
  • Tea strainer
  • Boiling water
  • Honey or other sweetener (optional)


  1. Gather your ingredients. Dried hibiscus flowers can be found at most health food stores, or you can use freshly-picked hibiscus flowers if you have them at hand. Make sure you’ve got a tea strainer and some boiling water to steep the tea.
  2. Prepare the flowers. If you’re using fresh hibiscus flowers, carefully remove the petals and discard the calyces. Dried hibiscus petals don’t need to be prepared.

  4. Strain. Once the desired steeping time is up, carefully remove the strainer and discard the flowers.
  5. Add sweetener (optional). To sweeten your tea, add a teaspoon of honey or other desired sweetener.
  6. Serve and enjoy! Pour the tea into cups and serve.
