This tart, refreshing iced herbal tea is perfect on a hot day! Hibiscus is very tart and lends its intense red color to the tea. Rose hips gives a more grounded, fruity flavor, and peppermint adds a refreshing herbal finish.
1 tablespoon of peppermint tea
1 tablespoon of dried rose hips
1 tablespoon of dried hibiscus petals
A large tea ball or strainer
1 liter of boiling water
Put the herbs in a tea ball and let steep for 2 hours or until cool. The tea will develop a beautiful deep red color as it sits. Add ice cubes and a little honey to sweeten or enjoy it straight!
