Hibiscus Tea, a delicious tea recipe from West Africa, can be taken hot or cold.
Hibiscus on its own has a tart, cranberry-like flavor. However, this recipe includes some spicey notes and a hint of mint, topped with a slight aroma of cinnamon.
In Senegal, it is known as bissap and is called the “national drink of Senegal.” Hibiscus tea is usually flavored with mint or ginger in West Africa. In Ghana, it is known as “sobolo,” and “zobo” in Nigeria, and Karkadé in north Africa, especially Egypt and Sudan.
Enjoy this drink with some ice.
