Agua de Jamaica - Hibiscus Flower Tea

I brewed a large batch of this refreshing Hibiscus Flower Tea recipe for a bridal shower this past weekend. Everyone really loved my added touches of cinnamon and brown sugar.
16 cps Water

1 cp Flor de Jamaica or
Dried Hibiscus Flowers
1 cp Brown Sugar
1 cp Baker's or White Sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
2 tbls lime juice (opt.)

Boil 8 cups of water in a large pot. When bubbly, immerse dry flowers in water. Leave for 5 minutes. Add sugars and cinnamon and place on simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from stove and let tea simmer and cool down.

Add 8 cups of cold water or ice cubes. Serve in tall glass with ice and lime slice.

Makes One Gallon
