Hibiscus has a pleasantly tart and sour taste with a raspberry, rhubarb, and plum character and a floral, berrylike aroma. Because of its vibrant red color, it livens up refreshing teas and other cooling drinks.

Jus de vissap, a cold hibiscus drink often called the national drink of Senegal, is also popular in neighboring parts of West Africa.


  1. 1Combine hibiscus blossoms with cloves, cinnamon stick, and vanilla pod in a large pot. Add 2 quarts boiling water and boil for 1 minute, stirring. Turn off the heat, sweeten with honey or sugar, and steep for 1 hour.
  2. 2Strain, pressing the blossoms to extract all the juices. Serve hot or cold.
