When it comes to summer entertaining I love adding a flavored tea to the beverage table. It’s super easy to transform your favorite black tea into a summer fruit creation. It’s an easy way to make a little something special for your guests. Add plum slices to really knock this drink out of the park.
Let’s talk a little bit about Hibiscus. This little treat from nature offers a tangy cranberry flavor. It’s not the flower itself that is used in recipes. Something remarkable happens when a hibiscus flower is spent. The flower leaves behind a red pouch (calyx) which holds the seed. It’s the pouch (not the seed) that you want to dry. If you have one in your yard, take a look at the spent blooms.
Here is a great photo showing the end of a bloom and the creation of a ripe calyx (the picture below is from Tyrant Farms).
Do you prefer sweet tea? If so, then simply add 2 cups of granulated to sugar to the water with the plums, ginger and hibiscus.
