A tea known as Agua de Jamaica, or simply Jamaica in Mexico, is usually served chilled with copious amounts of sugar to sweeten the natural tartness of the hibiscus.
Powdered hibiscus flower has beautiful color and texture and is an easy way to add tart, berry-like flavor and a boost of vitamin C to foods and beverages.
Hibiscus is also a source of naturally occurring bioflavonoids & vitamin C. Blend with Rose Hips and make a tasty “immunity tea” the whole family can enjoy!
Hibiscus flower powder can also be used as a natural blusher. Simply mix a small amount of the powder with a little arrowroot powder until the desired shade is achieved.
