Hibiscus Tea | Agua De Jamaica | Pressure Cooker
Did you know that pressure cooking dried hibiscus leaves make a lovely, refreshing Hibiscus Tea in your Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker? It is such a perfect drink for Summer! Ever since I made the Instant Pot Horchata, I knew it was only a matter of time before I made Agua De Jamaica in the Instant Pot. My usual problem with Hibiscus Tea is that it can be a little acidic. But once I’d made Iced tea in the Instant Pot and realized how it reduced bitterness to make it that way, I was fairly sure this method would cut down on the acidity in the Jamaica as well–and sure enough, it did.
This recipe makes a very deep, red drink. I had to take it out in the sunshine so you could see any pink in it. Making this in the Instant Pot or pressure cooker gives it such a lovely, smooth taste. The other advantage of pressure cooking was that straining it was a breeze. The petals sank to the bottom and all I had to do was pour carefully. I didn’t even need to strain really, which was nice.
Want to give my Instant Pot Instant Horchata a try? Like most things in the Instant Pot, it’s quite easy to make and it’s as delicious as the original yet with less sugar!
