Summer DIY: Hibiscus Iced Cooler

This tart, refreshing iced herbal tea is perfect on a hot day! Hibiscus is very tart and lends its intense red color to the tea. Rose hips gives a more grounded, fruity flavor, and peppermint adds a refreshing herbal finish.


1 tablespoon of peppermint tea

1 tablespoon of dried rose hips

1 tablespoon of dried hibiscus petals

A large tea ball or strainer

1 liter of boiling water

Large pitcher


Put the herbs in a tea ball and let steep for 2 hours or until cool. The tea will develop a beautiful deep red color as it sits. Add ice cubes and a little honey to sweeten or enjoy it straight!
