Hibiscus Flowers are edible flower petals, and have a lovely deep pinkish red colour. Hibiscus flowers are most commonly used in tea and it's what gives the "zing" to Red Zinger Tea. It has a fresh, tart flavour that can be sweetened if desired. Hibiscus can be brewed and consumed hot, for a warming, comforting tea, or made into a pleasantly refreshing iced tea (a staple of Mexican cuisine known as agua de jamaica).
SUGGESTED USES: This has a tangy, tart, floral flavour. It creates great balance in soups and as a tea.
