This refreshing iced tea is perfect for a warm Texas autumn day or can be served warm as a hot tea when the temperatures dip.
Roselle is a species of hibiscus plant, and its buds are harvested for infusing tea, syrups and other treats with its tangy floral flavor. Try this brew, reminiscent of Starbucks Iced Passon Tea, at home.
2 cups roselle pods
1 orange or tangerine
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp cloves
1/4 cup sugar
Remove petals from stem by slicing around diameter with paring knife. Peel an orange or tangerine and scrape off the pith to avoid bitterness. Add all ingredients to small saucepan with 2 cups water and bring to simmer. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain tea and dilute as desired. Garnish with orange slices if desired.
