Cold brew hibiscus tea is go to summertime drink for me. I love grabbing my biggest mason jar and steeping a batch of this every week (or more). It's sweet and tart flavors are a perfectly refreshing beverage for a hot summer afternoon.
In the warmer months, I am constantly cold brewing, green tea, iced tea, coffee, herbal tea, you name it. Sometimes you just need an ice cold drink after some time in the heat and water just doesn't do the trick. I love keeping different teas with different sweetness around for when you want a bitter or a sweet drink.
This tea couldn't get any simpler! Just stuff a tea strainer with equal parts dried mint and dried hibiscus flowers and steep in cold water overnight or for at least 8 hours or so. I like to let it sit for close to 24 hours to get a lot of flavor out it! Then, add some sugar to your liking and give it a good shake! Make sure to serve it with plenty of ice.
If you want to take this recipe one step further it is great when spiked with a shot (or two) of vodka or rum! Garnish with some fresh mint leaves and lime wedges. Be sure to bring a jar of this to next backyard summer cookout!
