Today I experimented with red teas,because I was looking for a new ice tea flavor desperately,because right now I am trying to skip Green tea because of an issue I have with my tummy.
This actually came out really good and it was gone within 1 hour.
1,5 liters of very cold water water
3 teabags rose hip tea
3 teabags of rooibos tea (redbush tea)
1 bag of hibiscus tea
1/4 teaspoon citric acid or a tablespoon lemon juice
15 ice cubes
optional: sweetener/honey/fructose/sugar/agave nectar
Take 500 ml of the water and bring it to a boil in a small pot/deep saucepan .Add the teabags,sweetener and citric acid and remove from the stove.Steep for 8 minutes.Fill the ice into the pitcher and pour the tea over the ice.Immediately add the cold water and you are ready to sip your very healthy red iced tea.
