Ginger Hibiscus Iced Tea Recipe
Since you all loved my Sparkling Lemonade Recipe (click if you didn't see it yet), I thought I would share with you another warm weather favorite of mine. This recipe was from my mother in law, and gets tweaked a little bit each time I make it.
- 1 tsp green tea
- 1 tsp diced fresh ginger
- 1/8th cup dried hibiscus (aka Rosa De Jamaica) You can find these in a health food store- or if you have a friend going on holidays to Central America, get them to bring you a big bag back (that's what I do)
- 1 lemon
- 1 litre of boiling water
Boil water and pour into glass pitcher. Steep your green tea, ginger and hibiscus in hot water for 10 min (or longer if you like stronger flavor). Pour over ice and squeeze one lemon on top.
Quantity of each ingredient can be customized your preference. Since ginger is amazing for digestion, I often add a bit extra. In the comments below, let me know how you like it!
