Hibiscus Protein (Chicken, Beef, or Tofu) Marinade
Hibiscus is a tart, cranberry-like flavored herbal tea that contains Vitamin C and minerals. The Hibiscus sold by The Tea Experience is organic and originates from Egypt. An excellent ingredient for marinades!
0.5 oz Tea Experience Hibiscus Tea
¼ tsp Grapeseed or Canola Oil
Lemon Juice and 1 tbsp Lemon Zest

Bring 4-5 cups of water to a simmer, and steep hibiscus tea for 3-5 minutes. In a small sauce pot on medium heat, reduce the tea by half for flavor concentration.
