I drink quarts of this, or a variation on this, all summer. It’s the perfect pick-me-up after exercise or yardwork. The recipe comes from a Moosewood cookbook that I once checked from the library. The hibiscus-pomegranate is my favorite combination, but any fruity herbal tea and clear juice combo will be delicious. I also love peach tea with white grape juice.
A couple of teas to look out for are Celestial Seasonings Red Zinger and Republic of Tea Flowering Fruit Herb Tea.
10 hibiscus tea bags
6 cups cold water
2 cups pomegranate juice, or a blend
Steep the tea bags in water for 6 hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Remove teabags and squeeze the bags into the tea (a strainer and wooden spoon works great for this.) Add juice and stir.
Makes 2 quarts.
