Hibiscus Tea
This refreshing tea is also very good for heart health. If you don't have a tea pot, you can boil the water in a large saucepan, then add the tea bags and other ingredients to the water. We like to use fresh or dried stevia leaves and steep them with the hibiscus, but you can sweeten it at the end with stevia drops or any other type of sweetener.

For hot brewed:
  1. Bring water to a boil.
  2. While waiting, fill teapot with hot tap water. Rinse herbs and remove leaves from stems if desired. It’s not necessary, but will give you more room in the tea pot. Pour out the hot tap water and place herbs in the teapot. Add tea bags or loose tea.
  3. Pour boiling water over the tea and herbs, cover and steep 5-10 minutes. (If your teapot won’t hold all of the water, you can transfer the brewed and cooled tea to a large pitcher or glass jar and add the extra water at that time.)
  4. Remove herbs and teabags. When cool, transfer to a large glass jar or pitcher. Add water to dilute to desired strength.
For sun brewed:
  1. Rinse herbs and push into jar. Fill a large glass jar or pitcher with water, leaving at least 2 inches of space on top.
  2. Add tea and herbs. Tighten lid and leave in the sun about 4 hours.
  3. Remove herbs and teabags and store in refrigerator.
