Jamaica, Jamaica

This is not a post on Kymani Marley’s 2006 summer smash, ‘Jamrock,’ nor does it have anything to do with the tiny Carribean island or its popular cultural export, reggae. I would simply like to pay tribute to one of my favorite summertime drinks, the refreshing Mexican chilled hibiscus tea, Jamaica (prounced ‘ha-MY-kuh). K&L’s resident Michoacaner, Jorge Valencia, makes a terrific Jamaica and has been sure to keep our Fridge stocked for the past few weeks. Nothing like fresh, tangy hibiscus tea for a mid-afternoon pick me up. Thanks, Jorge.
