Hibiscus iced cubes: beautiful blocks of health!

Hibiscus is all the rage lately, quickly climbing the health trend ladder to become one of our most bought herbal teas. On top of lowering blood pressure and high cholesterol, it also has a super high vitamin C content (which makes it a great addition to tea time during cold season!) This recipe makes adding the goodness of this rich purple flower easy and gorgeous to boot! Try popping them in lemonade, juice, fruity tea, or even a glass of water for a boost of wellness benefits and a tart taste explosion!

The Goods:
Tealish Loose Leaf Hibiscus Tea
Boiling water
Teapot/infuser and bowl

The Method:
1. Steep 3 teaspoons of hibiscus flowers in 500ml of boiling water for 5 minutes. Strain and let cool completely

2. In the meantime, fill an ice cube tray with hibiscus flowers. Try to put at least on flower in each cube.

3. When the hibiscus tea has cooled, pour it over the flowers in the ice cube tray. Freeze overnight.

4. Put a cube in your favorite bevvies for a sour hit of vitamin C! The flowers will melt out and float to the bottom of your cup while you sip!
