Hibiscus tea

A friend of mine recently showed me how to make hibiscus tea.  How did I not know this was possible?!  It's easy: Pick flowers.  I used four flowers for a pot of water.

Remove the stamens.  Throw the flowers into a pot of boiling water and turn the heat off.  Let sit for 20 minutes.  I usually add a cinnamon stick for some added flavour.

After 20 minutes, strain out the flowers.  The water will be purple.  Add a few squeezes of lemon juice and the water will magically turn hot pink!  Add sugar to taste.  Hibiscus tea is full of vitamin C and antioxidants.   Straight from the garden to the sippy cup (or your beverage holder of choice)!
