Hibiscus Iced Tea - Sorrel tea - Agua de Jamaica

Hibiscus Tea is a “herbal tea” that can be consumed both hot and cold. Some call it Sorrel Iced Tea. It is not to be confused with Jamaican Sorrel Drink made at Christmas as the ingredients are different. Here is our Hibiscus Tea recipe.

  • 1 cup of dried hibiscus flowers (sorrel)
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoon grated ginger (optional)
