Hi, I'm Deserie, your Natural Remedy Advisor. I'm here today to talk with you about how to make hibiscus tea from petals. You want to start off with hibiscus flowers that are in full bloom and fully open. Alternatively, you can use dried flower petals as well, two tablespoons would be used instead of the full eight flower that we're going to use today. And basically, you separate the petals from the flower and, and you'll rinse them. For fresh, you want to use eight flowers to four cups of water. You want to boil the water and then after the water has come to boiling, you'll add the petals, but you want to turn the heat off. You want to cover it tightly and make sure to steep it for 15 to 20 minutes. However, you don't want to steep it for much longer than that because it will make the tea bitter. After the steeping process, you will strain it. If you want to make a stronger tea, add more flower petals versus letting it steep longer. Optionally, you can use cinnamon sticks in the infusion process to add additional flavor or you can also add some lemon or some honey. Hibiscus flowers are loaded with Vitamin C, so they're really great for times when there are illnesses going around; drinking a cup a day of fresh hibiscus flower tea is very beneficial for your health. I am Deserie, and this is making hibiscus tea from petals.
