Agua de Jamaica


Water Dried Jamaica flowers Sugar

Boil for ten minutes


Boil water, and add the dried hibiscus flowers. Let boil for 10 minutes and turn off the heat, so it can steep.

Strain the tea


Using the back of your cooking spoon strain the tea into a pitcher and add water.

Add sugar


For my diabetic friends, you can use any sugar substitute. Or, sweeten it up with piloncillo.

Stir to combine


Taste it, if it needs more sugar, add more. This recipe will make quite a bit of concentrate.

It's done!
