Hibiscus Tea

Directions

  1. This bright red-purple tea will go fast in the summer sun, so make two pitchers when serving a crowd. Using a vegetable peeler, thinly peel two oranges, being careful not to remove the bitter white pith. Squeeze and set aside juice from oranges. In a very large bowl combine peel, 2 cups dried hibiscus flowers,* 4 cinnamon sticks, and 3/4 cup honey. Stir in 14 cups boiling water. Cool to room temperature (about 2 hours). Strain into a very large pitcher; stir in orange juice. Serve at once over ice or cover and chill up to 24 hours. Makes 12 (8-oz.) servings.
