This sounds really good.
What was the inspiration for it? Or where did you find it?

I was looking for some new ways to use hibscus and came across the main recipe on an egyptian website. Then saw someone else with a simular recipe that contained part of a cinnamon stick for the earthy touch.

I made a pitcher yesterday and ended up finishing it in about an hour.

Its on the sweet side, but the cinnamon balances it out.
It also looks pretty cool.

By pitcher, do you mean that you made it into an iced tea?

Yeah. I had the first glass hot. Then had the other 2 cold.

The original recipe actually called for crushed ice. So I figured I had to try it both hot and cold.

I may have to, next paycheck, see about collecting what in this I am missing to give it a try. :)

Cool :D

I just lucked out in happening to have it all around already. I picked up hibiscus and rosehips about 2 weeks ago, then unknowingly stumbled into some mixes that combined them.
