Agua de jamaica, or chilled hibiscus tea, is one of the most refreshing drinks I’ve had. Here is my recipe for this delicious drink, you will love it!

Recipe from The Denver Post.


1 1/4 cups dried hibiscus flowers
3 cups water (for steeping)
4 cups water
3/4 cup agave syrup (or 1/2 cup sugar)
Cucumber slices, garnish


1) Add dried hibiscus to a medium pot with three cups of water. Bring to a simmer and simmer for a few minutes. Then kill the heat and let steep for at least two hours.

2) Strain flowers out with a mesh strainer. Pour four cups of fresh water over the flowers to rinse them off.

3) Stir agave syrup (or sugar) into the hibiscus tea.

4) Chill and serve over ice with cucumber slices as a garnish.
