dried hibiscus flowers or 8 Red Zinger herb tea bags
- In a large saucepan combine water and sugar. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add hibiscus flowers or Red Zinger herb tea bags. Reduce heat. If using flowers, boil gently for 40 to 50 minutes or until syrup is reduced to 3-1/2 cups. If using tea bags, boil gently for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags with a slotted spoon. Continue boiling gently until tea mixture is reduced to 2-1/2 cups. If using flowers, cool mixture 15 minutes; strain and discard flowers. Cover syrup and cool completely (syrup will thicken as it cools). Whisk 1 cinnamon into syrup. Add blueberries. Makes 4-1/2 cups syrup.
