Hibiscus Tea Recipe (Agua De Jamaica) Recipe

By Peanut Palate

🔪Prep Time: 5 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 mins


3 cups water

½ cup dried hibiscus leaves

1 tbsp lemon or lime juice Add 2 tbsp if you prefer it to be more tangy

1-2 1-inch slice ginger thin slices – add 2 for a stronger ginger flavor

½ medium cinnamon stick

6 tbsp xylitol


1In a large pot on the stove over medium high heat, boil water with the sugar and spices. Stir it every so often to make sure the sugar dissolves. Use only 3 cups water if you're going to drink it cold, or all 4 cups of water if you're drinking it hot.

2Once it's boiling and the sugar has dissolved, turn off the heat and stir in the hibiscus leaves.

3Let it sit for a half hour. You can leave it for longer as well.

4Strain into a pitcher so all spices and hibiscus flowers get strained out. Add in ice cubes to serve.

5Serve with lemon slices and enjoy cold!
