Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp hibiscus flowers
  • Handful of ice
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup to sweeten (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place hibiscus flowers in a tea bag.

  2. Add tea bag, mint leaves and water to a pitcher.

  3. Stir briefly to combine and then place in the fridge overnight to steep.

  4. When the tea is finished steeping (when the flavor and color are to your liking) add your ice and serve!

  5. If you’ve decided to sweeten, use simple syrup as regular honey and sugar won’t dissolve well in the cold tea. To make simple syrup heat equal parts sugar (I use coconut sugar) and water in a pan. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and then add to your ice tea.
