Drinking Hibiscus Bloom herbal tea brewed from freshly gathered and dried hibiscus is an easy way to get nature's healing strength into your body. African hibiscus teas can be hot, at room temperature or iced.

There are no hard and fast rules about hibiscus bloom flower African tea brewing. Everyone’s tastes and preferences are different. Some like strong herbal teas and others 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. When making a flower or herbal tea with small leaf and green leaf type plants, you can use a tea strainer. The tea strainer eliminates the need to strain off the small leaves later. 

Add your desired amount to a tea strainer or teapot. Cover with boiling water a let steep for 2- 5 minutes or until you created your perfect cup of tea based on tour preference.
