Karkadeh كركديه عناب

Karkadeh كركديه عناب

Egyptian Red Tea also known as Roselle Ennab

1 cup hibiscus flowers
1/2 cup sugar (more or less to taste)
1 gallon of water.

Bring 2 quarts (8 cups) of water to a boil.
Add the sugar. Stir to dissolve.
Add the 1 cup of hibiscus flowers and steep for 5-7 minutes.
(Authentically, the flowers would steep overnight in all the water brought to a boil)
Add the other 2 quarts of water.
Serve over ice. Garnish with thin lime slices if desired.

Precaution!!! Drinking hibiscus can reduce your blood pressure. If you have low blood pressure, please drink with caution and in moderation.
