In Tinguindin,Michoacan there is a lovely hotel called Meson de la Calle Real. Inside this hotel is one of the most lovingly maintained little gardens of any small Mexican hotel I have visited. Moments after having dropped my dried hibiscus leaves into our morning concoction of water, honey and hydration salts, I was delighted when one of our group pointed to the beautiful deep red blossom that had opened up to greet the morning. Hibiscus: a tasty, sexy bud.
