Hibiscus flowers are known for their dark red colour. Drinks made from this flower are common among African countries for refreshment, and for medicinal purposes too. Here I share my personal recipe of Hibiscus tea with Arabian flavours. I like to drink it cold, but you can have it warmed up, to supply warmness in the Winter months.
