    This red tea simply takes your breath away. Later I found that they were dried petals of the hibiscus flower. Not sure whether I should call it tea, but it is very rich in taste and flavor. It works as a great sweet and cold beverage if infused with honey and a tinge of line to it. You can actually give it to your children for the summer days. It feels refreshing and is very cooling on the system.
