Hibiscus Herbal Tea Blend
Makes about 1 1/2 cups

1 cup dried hibiscus flowers
1 tbsp dried chamomile
1 tbsp dried lavender
1/4 cup dried black mission figs, chopped into small pieces
rosewater, for serving

In a medium bowl, stir together hibiscus, chamomile, lavender, and figs. Store in an airtight container. Tea blend will last up to six months. To brew tea, heat filtered water to 205 degrees (this is for best results, #sorrynotsorry). Once heated, add a tiny splash of rosewater to the water when ready to steep. Pour rosy hot water over tea blend, covering and steeping one teaspoon of the tea blend for every 8oz of water for 5 minutes.
