Hibiscus tea is known by many names all around the world. The three names I’m most familiar with are Hibiscus, Bissap and Sorrel. Hibiscus is called Bissap in Senegal and it is known as Sorrel throughout the Caribbean.
I’m not a big fan of tea, especially in the summer when the temperatures are high. But when I discovered this cold brew recipe for Hibiscus tea, It became a mainstay in my fridge. Sweetened or unsweetened, it’s so refreshing and good for us too. I decided to include Hibiscus/Bissap/Sorrel Tea as a part of my Africa In Our Kitchen Spice Blends and Tea inventory.
