Hibiscus tea is made from sepals of the hibiscus flowers. Its tart cranberry-like flavor works perfectly for iced teas. The tea is popular in the Carribean and Central America and Mexico. Hibiscus tea is also known as agua de Jamaica and rosa de Jamaica.

1/8 cup Rooibos Ginger Lime tea
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups hot water
3 cups cold water
Steep the tea in hot water for 10 minutes

It's getting hot out there. It's only June and we have a rare heat advisory out today. One of the things you can do to stay cool and energized is make yourself a iced coconut matcha latte. Its a very easy recipe to follow. (Check out the video at the end).
It's getting warm and toasty out there. Guess what's it time for? Iced Tea!!!
Let me share with you today a very easy method of making iced tea. It is a method we use at Leaf Tea Bar. It is a very easy way to make iced tea this way. There is no need to wait for the tea to cool, and you can make this practically with any tea. I love it with Darjeeling first flushes and other lighter delicate teas.
