Recipe Notes

Sobolo (Hibiscus Iced Tea) is a highly popular beverage in Ghana and other West African countries, slightly different from the Hibiscus tea/drink drunk in different parts of the world. It has been around for a  while but it really got popular in Ghana between 2004 and 2006. Now you can find it in almost any restaurant in Ghana or Nigeria.
