how to make a hibiscus drink

Since then, I have learned to make the drink. Hibiscus is full of vitamin C and high in antioxidants.
step1: boil 5 cups of water.
step 2: pick 10 fully opened hibiscus flower.
step 3: remove the stamen and the back of the flower.
step 4: rinse the flower.
step 5: remove water from heat.
step 6: stir in the flowers, cover and let it steep for 20 minutes.
step 7: infusion is done. you get a dark purple colour.
step 8: add sugar or honey to taste.
step 9: when infusion has cooled, remove the petals.
Step 10: add one lemon juice. you get a beautiful red colour.
step 11: add ice and drink.
It tastes like ribena.
