My Blue Tea's Roselle powder can be used for making jams or drinks like a healthier version of Ribena packed with Vitamin C.

Making a delicious Roselle drink

Experience the delightful flavor of our Roselle powder effortlessly by incorporating just 1 tsp into 500ml of water, along with limes, honey (or your preferred sweetener), and optionally soda water. The combination of Roselle's tartness and lime's sourness beautifully contrasts with the sweetness of honey, resulting in a truly satisfying taste.
