    This recipe is great. I always make hot hibiscus tea in the winter and agua de Jamaica in the summer, which is more syrupy. The first time I made this recipe, I made it exact according to the recipe. The second time I made it, I added zested ginger, and it tasted amazing. I also use Demerara sugar instead, as I don't like refined sugar.

    TEANZO Hibiscus Iced Tea is one of my all time favorites in the summer. I love to add some bruised mint leaves to it or even muddle the mint leaves before adding to my tea. Delicious and so refreshing!
