    Feelah_the_tigress's Note:

    I know the name sounds a bit funny, but there's a story behind it. I found this little bag of Kool Aid packets up in my cabinet and decided to use them up so they wouldn't be taking up space anymore. Now, I've never really been fond of the taste of Kool-Aid; it always seemed to me to be lacking in flavor such that you had to make up for it with tons of sugar. It also stains worse than any other drink I've ever had to deal with (including hibiscus!). Well, being less than pleased with Kool-Aid, I decided to make a tea blend that was sort of similar to Kool Aid's Punch/Cherry/Strawberry flavors, but better. Also, since my recipe is made of herbal tea ingredients, it's probably healthier than Kool Aid in some way... Anyway, this hibiscus tea is the fruit of my labor. Maybe this blend would be good for someone who wants to cut back on their Kool Aid intake? Just note that it is much better chilled than it is warm. Note: I've listed things in teaspoons because this website won't let me list it in parts, but it's technically in a ratio, so you can make whatever quantity you want.
