 Jack and I are obsessive iced tea drinkers. Whereas some people thrive on coffee, we require our daily dose of antioxidant-filled tea. I’ve always loved the bold, pungent hibiscus tea that I order at some of my favorite lunch spots. Once I started making my own at home, I was even more hooked. For a clean taste, I like to cold-brew my hibiscus tea. You can find hibiscus flowers online—they’re inexpensive, and they come in a giant bag so that you can enjoy this tea for a long time to come! 

¼ cup hibiscus flowers
4 cups cold filtered water
1 small bunch mint, for garnish
¼ cup raspberries, for garnish
Sweetener of choice (optional)

Place the hibiscus flowers in a large jar or medium pitcher. Add the water, stir to combine, and chill until bright red, at least 20 minutes. For a deeper color and flavour, chill overnight. Strain, serve over ice, and sweeten to taste, if desired. Garnish with fresh mint and raspberries, as desired.
