GINGER HIBISCUS TEA
I love herbal iced tea in the summertime- there is nothing more refreshing! This recipe is made with hibiscus, which is full of antioxidants and offers liver support. The ginger aids in digestion and the mint is a good source of vitamin A. Add some freshly squeezed orange juice for sweetness and a little vitamin C.
Makes 4 drinks
4 cups boiling water
5 hibiscus tea bags
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 bunch of fresh mint
Juice of 1 orange
8 drops of liquid stevia (optional)
½ cup of sparkling mineral water (I love Gerolsteiner)
Pour the boiling water over the tea bags and let steep for 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
In a pitcher or large mason jar, combine the tea, ginger, mint and stevia, if using. Let it chill completely, preferably overnight.
Stir in the mineral water and orange juice right before serving.
Garnish with orange slices and mint.
