HIBISCUS TEA

Since a long this recipe was in my mind ...but i did not have the required red hibiscus in my garden. One day my daughter brought Hibiscus tea from a local restaurant for me to taste. I liked it very much, since then i was restlessly waiting and watching the flowers to bloom. Today, at last i saw a red hibiscus. And here is the outcome of hibiscus. I heard it has a lot of medicinal values and it is good for high cholesterol and high blood pressure patients.
RED HIBISCUS TEA

WHAT YOU NEED:

I USED 5 PETAL HIBISCUS FOR THE DRINK

HOW TO MAKE:

Boil one cup of water along with tea leaves, cinnamon stick and cardamom. Boil for few minutes. Switch off the gas.


Then put the hibiscus petals in the boiled tea water. Keep covered for an hour. 

After an hour strain the tea through a strainer.
