Bissap, hibiscus tea – West Africa/Caribbean


1. Boil the water in a pan

2. Turn the heat off and add the hibiscus leaves

3. Let steep for 10-15min

4. The water starts to turn fuschia as soon as you add the leaves

5. Pour the bissap in a big bowl through a strainer

6. Add the sugar, and stir. Make sure to add it while the water is still hot or it won’t dissolve. If you wait too long and the sugar does not dissolve, but the bissap back on the stove and heat up gently while stirring, until all the sugar dissolves

7. Let cool, and transfer it to a bottle through a sifter to get rid of the last leaves.

Tip: You can add a few mint sprigs for flavor, or a little bit of pineapple juice or enjoy it plain
