Hibiscus & Rose Water Iced Tea with Mint and Grapefruit
This glorious weather we’ve been having in Ireland calls for some homemade iced tea! I have been buying hibiscus flowers in the health store in Mitchelstown every few weeks – as it’s a great way to reduce high blood pressure – but I haven’t come across it in supermarkets yet unfortunately. That being said, I recently bought a mini cookbook with some great drinks in it and saw hibiscus being combined with rose water and thought it was a great base for an iced tea.
I’m personally not a big fan of grapefruit as it’s just too bitter for me but I read that it’s a great way to balance sweet cocktails or iced teas. So I highly recommend putting a slice into your drink just to tone down the sweetness.
