Hibiscus-Mint Iced Tea
Mmmm, how delicious does this sound off the bat? The lemony-tart, yet fruity-rich flavor of the hibiscus pairs oh-so-perfectly with the mint in Martha Stewart’s Hibiscus-Mint Iced Tea that our mouths are watering as we speak! After you combine 4 hibiscus tea bags and mint leaves (to your liking) in boiling water, remove the tea bags after 10 minutes, leaving the leaves for added flavor and decoration. Pour in 2 cups of delicious apple juice and cold water, and voila! You have one of the best taste-tested iced teas out there. Enjoy this picture-perfect drink on those hot summer days or to cool off at night!
