50g zobo flowers (you may use dried or fresh ones depending on which you can get. Note that the more flowers used per volume of water, the more concentrated your drink).

10g of freshly crushed ginger (use more if you want a spicy hot drink)
Half a teaspoon of ground cloves – optional)
Half a teaspoon of allspice (pimento) – optional
Some orange peels (optional)

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
