Tizz's Tips
Adding ice to glasses just before serving guarantees that iced tea won't become diluted in the refrigerator.
Where to get dried hibiscus flowers? Try your local health food store. Or substitute 2 hibiscus teas bags for the flowers in the recipe.
For an interesting summer adult beverage add a few splashes of vodka and fizzy water to your hibiscus iced tea.
