𝗛𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆! I want to share with you my 𝘴𝘶𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳 𝘣𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘨𝘦 𝘰𝘣𝘴𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯...
𝗛𝗶𝗯𝗶𝘀𝗰𝘂𝘀 & 𝗥𝗼𝘀𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗙𝗶𝘇𝘇
Hibiscus is a cooling and refreshing tea, great for summer. (Note if you have low blood pressure, avoid or use hibiscus sparingly, as it can lower blood pressure.)
Rosemary is slightly warming, enough to keep it balanced and add a unique accent of flavour. It’s also great for circulation.
𝘐𝘯𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 & 𝘐𝘯𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴:
🌺 Gather some loose-leaf dried hibiscus and rosemary. (@theherbalclinic is a good place to grab some!)
🌺 Brew an extra strong batch of hibiscus & rosemary tea, at a ratio of 2:1 (2 parts hibiscus: 1 part Rosemary). I like to make almost 1 litre to have extra on hand.
Let the tea cool for an hour, then put in a glass jar in the fridge to chill for a few hours. You can store it in the fridge for a week or so.
🌺 When ready to drink, fill a mason jar with 1/3 tea mix and 2/3 soda water.
🍋 I like to add a squeeze of lemon juice to make it extra tart & refreshing.
And yes, in case you noticed: while it may not be the 100% TCM thing to do, even *I* will put a few ice-cubes in my drink in +40 degree weather! (albeit with room temperature bubbly 😉)
🍹 𝙆𝙞𝙘𝙠 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙩 𝙪𝙥 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙚𝙣𝙟𝙤𝙮!
Try it and let me know what you think! Have a great weekend 🌞
