Hibiscus flowers (also known as Roselle) contain Vitamin C and antioxidants.
They are used as a mild medicinal tea in many cultures and are grown locally in Hong Kong. I bought mine in Tai Po village. They have the most amazing colour and a nice tart flavour that goes with ginger and lemon very well. Sweetened when cooled with some raw honey and you have a fun colour, nutrient rich and immune boosting tea the kids and adults alike cannot help but like.
