As kids my sister and I would always drink cold hibiscus mixed with fresh lime juice and I suspect a fairly heavy dose of sugar! I adore hibiscus and this is the perfect way to cool down on a hot day and makes a great addition to any barbecue or picnic! If you can't find hibiscus, cranberry juice also works quite well.
4 cups boiling water
8 bags hibiscus tea
3-5 tbsp honey
2 cups sparkling water (optional if you would rather avoid fizz)
handful of mint leaves
berries for garnish
In a large pitcher, combine tea bags, honey, and boiling water; let steep 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how strong you like your tea.
Remove tea bags.
Add ice to pitcher and stir in sparkling water, squeeze in limes.
Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled.
Garnish with berries.
