Everyone’s tastes and preferences are different. Some like strong herbal teas and other prefer mild or lightly flavored herbal infusions. You can also buy your herbs dried from health food stores, and this is an excellent source for more exotic herbals. A dried herb will have a stronger flavor than a fresh herb. Dried Hibiscus Bloom Tea is the perfect recipe for an exotic yet simple tea.


There are tons of fresh herbs that of course are preferable for making herbal teas such as dried hibiscus flowers or Flor De Jamaica. Be sure to always rinse and wash herbs and flowers prior to making tea. Use one teaspoon of dried herbs per cup of water, more to taste.
