Hibiscus tea is tart and slightly sweet, with a deep red color. It’s often enjoyed hot or iced and can be sweetened with honey, sugar, or agave nectar.
Hibiscus can also be used in cocktails and other beverages. A popular example is the hibiscus margarita, which combines hibiscus tea with lime juice, tequila, and triple sec.
Hibiscus syrup can be drizzled over ice cream, pancakes, or waffles for a sweet and tangy twist. Hibiscus jam can be spread on toast or used as a filling for pastries or cakes.
