Hibiscus tea or roselle tea has been consumed as a soothing evening tea for centuries in Egypt and East Asia. Hibiscus is also known for its ability to cool the body.
Flavor: Smoothly tart, lightly floral with a touch of gentle sweetness. Very pleasant hibiscus essence.
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
Ingredients: Dried Hibiscus (Roselle) flower
