    I made this just as the recipe stated. Flavor wasn't so good the first day so I let it sit overnight. The next day all flavors were full and perfectly blended. Highly recomend this recipe especially with Valentine Day approaching! Definiltey a keeper, thanks Michael!
    The tea looked good on television. I just had the hibiscus, cinamon and stevia. The tea was fabulous. Ill make it for my next outing.
    My husband is one of the pickiest eaters alive. He really turned his nose up at the thought of tea, let alone tea with "flowers" in it. But he was tricked into trying it and drank my whole glass. It's a wonderfully refreshing twist on a old favorite.
