1/2 Photos of Karkanji-Hibiscus Tea - Africa
This refreshing drink can be made entirely from plants grown in Chad(and they are readily available in the rest of the world too). With the heat as strong as it is here, karkanji satisfies thirst at little cost. This is also used as a product of many a home-based business, and sold at the edge of a school, business or sporting event by the glassful. Some say it is good for colds, runny noses and flu symptoms.
