- Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan or teapot
- While water is boiling, add hibiscus and rosehips to a teabag like this or a metal strainer. I use this teapot that comes with a reusable metal strainer for loose leaf tea.
- Once water is nearly boiling add tea to teapot or saucepan for 15 minutes and let steep.
- Remove Tea and Pour into a large carafe and add honey and lemons.
- Add several cups of Ice and enjoy
This tea is similar to a fruity punch and depends on the amount of honey you use for sweetness. It has a lot of vitamin C from the rosehips and hibiscus.
It tastes great with 1 part tea and 2 parts ice to bring it to temperature. The lemon gives it a delicious flavor and you could also add some fresh mint for color.
