These hibiscus flower petals come from the Roselle plant which is a species of hibiscus which looks like a scruffy shrub and not like the exotic flowers we may see on holiday!
Nevertheless this plants produces flavoursome flowers that have been brewed into a vibrant, refreshing tea for centuries in North Africa.The flavour of hibiscus is complimented and enhanced by the inclusion of rose hip when making a herbal tea.
An infusion of hibiscus flowers adds flavour to jam, jelly and desserts such as Granita. Spices such Ginger, Allspice and Cinnamon all work well with hibiscus.
Directions for a basic infusion
Use recently boiled water.
Spoon 1-2 teaspoons per person in a teapot or mug.
Allow to brew for 3-4 minutes before removing the petals.
Add honey or other sweet syrup to taste if you wish.
