The hot days of summer necessitate cold, soothing beverages that everyone can enjoy. Infusing hibiscus flower tea with lemon makes it so refreshing!
When company comes over, iced tea is my go-to drink. It’s easy to have simple, interesting, and quick drinks to serve your guests, that are not laced with the sugars, artificial flavors and what-have-you (that no one should be ingesting) that are in commercial iced teas.
I’ve always made iced tea to have on hand during the summer months. It’s so easy to use tea bags and just add some fresh herbs and a bit of honey. There you have a drink kids love!
You can ditch the soda and other chemical laden drinks while making different tasting and interesting drinks that will quench anyone’s thirst!
This is an infusion, because you are extracting the flavors from the fresh herbs and tea leaves by allowing them to steep in the water. The resulting liquid is called an infusion.
Hibiscus flower tea has several cardiovascular health benefits. It has been used for centuries to lower and maintain blood pressure and has been found to maintain healthy cholesterol levels. It has also been used in combination with lemon balm to quell restlessness and insomnia.
