Hibiscus Sun Tea

The lovely crimson hibiscus plant makes a wonderfully tart and delicious tea.  The health benefits of this vibrant plant have been celebrated for centuries in cultures all around the world.

With studies linking the acids contained in hibiscus to lower blood pressure, this healing plant also contains phytochemicals like quercetin, shown to reduce inflammation and support kidney health, and antioxidants known to reduce the effects of aging*.

This simple Hibiscus Sun Tea is perfect for overnight steeping, no heat required.  It’s a beautiful thing to wake up to, with lots to spare for all day enjoyment.

Ingredients

For stovetop or microwave:  heat water until it reaches the point of simmering.  Remove from the heat and using your tea strainer, steep the tea for about 20 minutes while it cools.  Remove tea bags and continue cooling until it reaches room temperature.

Overnight or sun tea method:  Pour the water into a mason jar or pitcher, depending on what type of strainer you’re using.  One that fits inside the mouth of the mason jar is perfect for this, see below.

For either method:  add remaining ingredients and serve iced or hot. May be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. *While hibiscus tea is completely safe for most people, if you’re currently using prescription medications, be sure to check with your doctor before enjoying too much of this potent tea.
