This recipe for hibiscus and mint iced tea was inspired by a trip to 8 Corners Tea House in Belcarra! Take your boat, highly recommend! It was so good I had to try to replicate it.
Heavenly Hibiscus and Mint Iced Tea
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 8 mint leaves, torn
- 4 cups water
- 40 g hibiscus leaves – Royal Command available at Posh!
- In a small sauce pan bring 1 cup water to a boil. Add ½ cup sugar and mix until sugar dissolves completely. Remove from heat and add mint leaves. Let steep for 20 minutes to infuse flavour.
- In another pot (at the same time potentially) bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add whole hibiscus leaves and let steep for 20 minutes until water is bright pink.
- Combine hibiscus water and simple syrup. Let cool, pour over ice, and enjoy!
