      Once you make the tea, you can throw out the flowers that you used…and if you have leftover (unused) flowers, I have other recipes you can use them in: http://patijinich.com/pati_2020/recipe/chocolate-cookies-with-hibiscus-flowers/ http://patijinich.com/pati_2020/recipe/hibiscus-and-pecan-mole/
