Plum Ginger Hibiscus Sun Tea

For this particular recipe, you’ll first need to add your choice of either dried or fresh plums into a jar, along with ½ inch of fresh ginger, two tablespoons of dried hibiscus flowers, and a single cup of water. Cover the jar with a lid and then place it somewhere outside where sunlight will be able to hit it for about three to five hours.

Drain the liquid out and then pour the remaining mixture into a glass filled with ice. Top it all off with water and add your preferred natural sweetening option. I like to go with raw honey when I make it.
