This version steeps the tea in your fridge for up to 2 days (it can take a minimum of 4 hours, but steep to your desired color and flavor). Prepare the tea in a pitcher or in a large bottle that fits in your fridge. You can make tinctures out of hibiscus flowers by soaking them in alcohol for several weeks before straining them out and storing them in a dark bottle away from direct sunlight or heat sources such as lamps or stoves. This will preserve the tincture for up to three years without spoiling it so long as you keep it sealed tightly enough that air does not get inside (it is possible for air bubbles or dust particles to get inside if you do not seal everything properly).
