Hibiscus tea nutritionals

By Chris April 12, 2011

Hibiscus is a flower that grows in tropical climates. It’s pretty tart and has an amazing deep red color when you steep it. There are several different ways this drink is traditionally prepared  by adding diffrent herbs, spices and/or sugar.  Our recipe: we double steep the hibiscus and add just enough brown sugar to balance some of the tartness without it tasting sweet.  It took us a while to find a balance between the two, but we think we found it.

We decided to put hibiscus tea on the menu when we first opened the MIT truck to give people a non-caffeinated drink option. This is for a 12 oz serving.
