Sent to me by a friend. It’s hot and humid here (although I suppose I shouldn’t complain, based on what the rest of the country is going through) but we don’t have air conditioning, and I’m a wimp when it comes to heat. So I hot-brewed and poured over ice.

Steeped as recommended, 4tsp/10oz, steeped six minutes.

It’s a bit strong for me. I could see big hibiscus flowers as I was scooping out the leaf, and while I usually like hibiscus, I think six minutes might have been a bit long, or I used too much leaf. It’s sour. I added a handful of rock sugar, and I’m using a honey spoon to stir it with. It’s not having a huge effect because the tea is already cold, but ah well. It’s cold at least!
