I’ve been experimenting a lot lately with using hibiscus in a variety of homemade recipes. It’s all been fairly new to me but I must say that I’m incredibly impressed with the results so far. Today I wanted to share one of the better hibiscus recipes I’ve found. It’s for making an easy and refreshing 3-ingredient hibiscus iced tea that doesn’t just taste amazing, it also offers up some pretty remarkable benefits for your health as well.
Hibiscus is known to help with reducing high blood pressure and high blood sugar levels, and it can even help your liver with its natural detoxification processes. For making this hibiscus iced tea, you’ll be using ½ cup of dried hibiscus flowers, along with eight cups of water, ⅔ cup of raw honey, and ¼ cup of freshly squeezed lime juice.
You’ll first need to boil the water over a high heat and leave your flowers to steep for about 20 minutes before straining the mixture out and then stirring in the honey and lime juice.
