Today I want to tell you about a tea I make for my family. I use a combination of herbs and it tastes like an herbal kool-aide! You can freeze this and it makes a wonderful popsicle as well!
I use a gallon jar because we drink lots of this! I fill it with filtered water.
Summer Hibiscus Herbal Tea/Popsicles:
- 4 TBSP Dried Hibiscus Flowers
- 2 TBSP Dried Lemon Balm
- 1 TBSP Oatstraw
- 1 TBSP Red Raspberry Leaf
- 1 Tsp Dried Stevia
- 1 dropper Berry flavored Liquid stevia leaf
Place the lid on and set in the sun for a few hours. Hibiscus is an amazing herb with many healthful properties, and can also be cold water infused. I enjoy the deep red color it imparts when set in a warm spot though.
Once it’s brewed for a few hours in the sun bring it in and pour the tea into a pitcher through a mesh sieve to strain out all the spent herbs. Pour over a glass of ice and add some lemon slices. Alternately you could pour this into popsicle molds and freeze for a few hours. My kids love these! This is also a good recipe to keep in your pocket during the winter. Hibiscus is rich in vitamin C. It is a cooling astringent herb that assists the body with fevers. I hope you enjoy this delicious tea!
