Karkadé or Hibiscus tea is the infusion made from crimson or deep magenta-coloured calyces (sepals) of the Hibiscus sabdariffa flower, an herbal tea drink consumed both hot and cold by people around the world.

And according to Wikipedia:
“Karkadé (pronounced /ˈkɑrkədeɪ/ KAR-kə-day; Egyptian Arabic: كركديه, [kæɾkæˈdeː]) is served hot or chilled with ice. It is very popular in some parts of North Africa, especially in Egypt and Sudan; hibiscus from Upper Egypt and Sudan is highly prized in both countries. This drink is said to have been a preferred drink of the pharaohs. In Egypt and Sudan, wedding celebrations are traditionally toasted with a glass of hibiscus tea. On a typical street in downtown Cairo, one can find many vendors and open-air cafés selling the drink.4 In Egypt, karkadé is used as a means to lower blood pressure if consumed in high amounts.” – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus_tea

EllieTea4Me says: If you want some, I have loads in a box I brought back from egypt, so message me etc if you would like some – I need to get rid of it to be honest!
