Hibiscus iced tea is delicious and also represents a number of health benefits. Packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, consumption of this tea boosts your immune system and helps protect against a variety of chronic diseases including heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
It's pretty easy to make your own hibiscus iced tea at home. Simply pour boiling water over hibiscus flowers and let it steep before straining. Once the tea is ready, you can either add a sweetener or simply transfer to the refrigerator to cool. You can also add green tea bags, mint leaves or fresh ginger to add further flavor and nutritional content to your hibiscus iced tea.
This iced tea works well on its own but can also be sweetened with honey or stevia to make a delicious and healthy iced tea.
