Hibiscus Iced Tea
4 teabags Hibiscus Tea Natural Life**
4 cups of hot water
4 cups of water
2/3 cup of honey *
* Honey is optional if you would like your tea sweet. Honey gives a special flavor and taste.
** Hibiscus Tea can affect estrogen levels which means that it has an effect on both pregnancy and fertility. If you are trying to become pregnant or are pregnant, you should probably avoid hibiscus in your diet. Hibiscus tea also lowers blood pressure which can be harmful if you already suffer from hypotension (low blood pressure).
-Make a brew of hibiscus tea using 4 teabags Hibiscus tea Natural Life and 4 cups of hot water (filtered water or mineral water will give a far better taste). Allow the tea to steep for no more than 5 minutes.
-In a large jug place the 4 cups of cold water. Add the honey (optional) to the cold water before you add the hibiscus tea. Stir until the honey is completely dissolved.
A secret here for you. Pour the hot brewed hibiscus tea into the water (honey) mixture and stir. Adding the hot tea to the cold water helps prevent the finished drink from becoming cloudy.
Allow to cool further then serve in glasses over ice. Sprigs of mint make an attractive garnish.
Iced tea will keep overnight in the fridge, but tea has a delicate flavor and for the best iced tea experience it should be drunk the same day.
