About Shumei, Philippines

Shinji Shumeikai (Shumei) is a global movement that seeks to restore the earth’ s natural balance through the appreciation of art and beauty, natural agriculture, and spiritual healing. While these pillars are distinct, they work in unison towards the creation of an ideal world. Art and beauty serve to refine the soul, while spiritual healing imparts a sense of tranquility and emotional wellbeing. In addition, the practice of natural agriculture seeks to free the physical body of illness, as well as demonstrate a respect and concern for the earth.

About Roselle

Roselle(Hibiscus sabadariffa) is an annual herbaceous shrub native to the Philippines. The plant’ s tall, leafy green stocks bear a fruit-like bud that becomes large, crisp and juicy when ripe. Reminiscent of the cranberry in flavor, Roselle lends well to juices, jam, jellies, wines, chutneys, and syrups. More than just a culinary delight, the edible bid is high in calcium, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin C and iron. Popular around the world, Roselle has long been used in herbal medicine to reduce high blood pressure. Shumei, Philippines is interested in Roselle for several reasons. First, market demand for Roselle and its associated products favors production at this time. Because the Plant grows easily and abundantly in the local climate, there is potential for cash-crop development. Second, planting and cultivating this particular crop will allow for the employment of Indigenous Peoples and community members. As a form of social enterprise, the labor will provide an opportunity for financial relief to those who remain affected by environmental adversities.

1.Bring four cups water to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Once the water comes to a rolling boil, turn the heat off.
2. Add 8 large fresh hibiscus flowers, or 2 tbsp. of dried flower petals to the water. Add 1 to 2 cinnamon sticks, depending on how strong you like the tea.
3. Cover the pan and allow the hibiscus flowers and cinnamon sticks to steep for 15 to 20 minutes. Do not leave the flowers in the water for more than 20 minutes, or you’ ll end up with a bitter tea. For a stronger tea, add more flowers instead of steeping longer.
4. Strain the hibiscus tea into a drink pitcher. Add the juice from one small lemon and sugar or honey to taste. Alternatively, you can leave the pitcher or tea unsweetened and allow guests to add their own sweetener.
5. Pour the tea over ice in individual glasses when serving. Garnish each glass with a lemon wedge, if desired. Refrigerate any leftovers for up to three days before discarding.
