refreshing recipe: hibiscus mint iced tea
If you saw the photos of my mint plants yesterday, you’d understand my need to search for mint recipes. When I happened upon this recipe on Saturday from Everyday Food, I jumped to making it because the ingredients were all right at hand!
3-4 bags of Hibiscus Tea (I used Republic of Tea’s HIBISCUS)
A handfull of mint leaves
2 cups of apple juice (I used Kirkland’s Fresh Pressed)
6 cups of water (4 cups of boiling; 2 cups of cold)
1. Boil 4 cups of water. When it’s at a good boil, remove it from heat and add your tea bags and mint leaves. Let it steep for 10-12 minutes.
2. Strain the mixture and remove all mint leaves and tea bags.
3. In a large pitcher, combine the tea mixture with 2 cups of apple juice and 2 cups of cold water.
4. Let it cool in the fridge and then serve it over ice!
It’s a really refreshing drink with no caffeine and isn’t too sweet thanks to the lack of extra sugar outside of the apple juice!
Mmm, sounds so refreshing! I’m stopping by the grocery store today anyway; going to pick up some hibiscus tea bags and apple juice to try this!
I’ve been literally looking for a delicious (and pretty) tea recipe for a baby shower I’m throwing! Thanks Kim. :)
Oh yum, this looks refreshing. Think I’ll make some myself, thanks!
