I’ve been enjoying freshly brewed hibiscus tea for a week, after being reminded of the incredible health benefits of this flowering herbal plant. Hot herbal teas are my drink of choice in the afternoons or on crisp chilly evenings.
Coming in late tonight, thirsty and with two blog posts to write, presented the perfect opportunity to try a fun twist on a favorite summer drink instead of my standard hot tea.
Special thanks to Anthony William for this simple and tasty drink. It’s not only delicious, it’s gorgeous as well.
4 cups of water, divided
2 teaspoons dried hibiscus
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 tablespoons raw organic honey
Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat, add dried hibiscus and cover. Allow to steep for 10 – 15 minutes. Strain tea and chill in refrigerator.
In a small bowl combine remaining water, lemon juice and honey, whisking until honey has dissolved and a smooth lemonade has formed. Chill lemonade while hibiscus tea cools. Combine cold liquids to create hibiscus lemonade. Garnish with lemon slices.
*Hibiscus tea bags can be used in place of loose hibiscus. Substitute 1 tea bag for 1 teaspoon dried. Organic maple syrup can be substituted for raw organic honey.
Tart and Refreshing Lemonade
The hibiscus lemonade was deliciously tart and so refreshing! I don’t typically use any type of sweetener in my tea however the honey added just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering.
I like sour flavors. The combination of hibiscus, with its cranberry-like tartness, and fresh lemon juice created the perfect cold drink.
As Anthony William prepares for the release of his newest book, Liver Rescue, he is sharing these wonderful, health boosting recipes. Hibiscus contains a unique compound that gives it a deep red color and rejuvenates the liver. Hibiscus cleanses mucus off cell membrane walls and improves the liver’s ability to function while supporting the organ’s personalized immune system. This herb cleanses and rejuvenates the gallbladder as well.
I’m looking forward to receiving Liver Rescue, due out next month, and more health improving recipes such as tangy Hibiscus Lemonade!
