I’ve been working on this one for about 4 months on and off and yesterday the final recipe was established! :)
I’m drinking it chilled right now, which I prefer over hot — the tart notes are less puckery in the chilled version. I actually never thought I’d get this excited over a tea with hibiscus but this is so refreshing!
The ginger is perfectly ‘there’ without being in-your-face spicy, it plays much more of a background note than anything but really makes the cup. Hibiscus and elder berries are equally recognizable as well, and the orange peel throws in just the lightest hint of citrus to the overall blend.
It’s sweet, tart, and soothing and the color is a lovely vibrant cerise.
