SHÔLO Dried Mexican Hibiscus 100g
Dried hibiscus flowers. Hibiscus Petals. Also called Jamaica in Spanish or Flor de Jamaica.
Boil a cup of jamaica (hibiscus) flowers in a quart of water, let it simmer and cool down in the refrigerator. Pour thru a strainer and add sugar to taste or more water if it's too strong.
Dried hibiscus flowers, known in Mexico as jamaica (pronounced "ha-ma-ike-ah", rather than like the name of the Carribbean island country) have long been available in health food stores in the U.S. for making a tea that is high in vitamin C. With the advent of interest in south-of-the-border cuisine, hibiscus flowers are sold in bags. This drink is particularly good for people who have a tendency, temporary or otherwise, toward water retention: it is a mild and completely natural diuretic.
