    My Grandmother always had a pitcher of this when we visited her in Laredo, Texas. My tea never turned out as good, because I never knew to make the concentrate first!

    Do you rinse the flowers first ? I brought fresh hibiscus from Mexico and love love love. Sometimes little particles so wondered if should rinse. Also how long can you leave concentrate or diluted drink in refrigerator ?

    Thank you

      It is a good idea to rinse them first, just run them below the faucet and clean them gently with your fingers. You can keep the concentrate in the fridge at least 3 months. Enjoy!

      You can drink it without sugar, would be a bit bitter but the flavor is still good. Or you can add some Stevia if you prefer.

      Hola Laura! El limon le da muy buen sabor a la jamaica, pero si no te gusta, no lo uses, ya sabes que es deliciosa de todas maneras. Saludos a CA!

    The title says this is a “concentrate ” but I don’t see directions on how to dilute the finished product.
