Iced Hibiscus Tea With BerriesWith the weather warming up, I will be posting a few more chilled out summery recipes, starting with this sweet, festive looking little number. Serve this fruity concoction iced cold and you will feel energised and refreshed all at the same time!

Hibiscus was traditionally used as a tonic for the heart and circulation, and is still often recommended for high blood pressure, colds and upper respiratory tract infections. It’s also loaded with wonderful antioxidants.

Ingredients:

6 teaspoons dried hibiscus petals

4 cups of boiling water

8 large strawberries, sliced

2 tbsp fresh blueberries

2 tbsp mint leaves, torn

Let’s do this! 

Boil your water, then wait until it’s just stopped simmering (about 15 seconds) and then in a plunger or teapot, add your water to the hibiscus petals.

Let it steep 10 minutes, strain and pop in the fridge until chilled (you may cheat and put it in the freezer – just don’t forget it’s in there!).

Serve over strawberries and blueberries.

Note: If you wish, you may sweeten your iced hibiscus tea with some coconut nectar or maple syrup.

Variation: Top up with 1/3 sparkling water for some extra fizz!
