Egyptian Tea Recipe

Preparation Instructions

Steep the hibiscus in the water in a pitcher for 40 minutes but no longer than 1 hour. You can drain the tea through a fine mesh sieve or place the hibiscus in cheesecloth and then strain out the excess liquid. Once you have strained the tea you can now start adding the orange flower water, sugar and honey. Place in the fridge to cool, however you can enjoy warm.

Yield: 4 Cups
Helpful Hints
