  1. Put the dried hibiscus flowers and ginger, into a measuring cup or pot big enough to hold 8 cups. Cover with the boiling water, and steep for 5 minutes or until you have the desired strength. The longer you leave it to steep, the stronger and more intense the flavor will be.
  2. Strain the tea into a jug or carafe through a fine sieve. It will be a gorgeous dark red. Stir in the agave or honey to taste. Serve hot or poured over ice.

Chef Tips

Vegans should use use agave nectar
Find dried hibiscus flowers at most health food stores, and at many specialty markets, particularly Latino markets where they are known as ‘Flor de Jamaica’ or Jamaican Flowers.
For a stronger drink leave the tea to steep overnight in the fridge before straining
