does anyone use black lemon or hibiscus in their paste?

I was chatting to a woman from Bharain this evening & she mentioned
both of these ingredients.

The hibiscus is brewed in boiling water the same time as you brew
your tea for the paste. It is added at the same time as the tea, and
apparently makes the stain a dark red.

She also recommended using black lemon in place of regular lemon/lime
juice, which deepens the stain and makes it last longer.

Anyone tried this?
