Hibiscus iced-tea

Hibiscus iced tea single

With only a couple of days left of summer, it’s time to make the most of the delicious summer berries and warm weather. What better way to quench your thirst than with this hibiscus iced-tea, jam-packed with anti-oxidants and immune boosting properties.   You can find hibiscus tea in your local grocery store or health food store. I have used the dry hibiscus flowers as they have a beautiful tart, fruity flavour. If you are using teabags, you will need 2-3 teabags and let them steep for 10 minutes.  Kids may find the iced -tea a little too tart, another tablespoon of honey seems to make it just sweet enough.
