Hibiscus tea contains vitamin C and minerals and some studies have indicated that it may help lower bad cholesterol and high blood pressure. It’s quite acidity, containing as much as 30% organic acids. It has a rather tart flavor so agave or honey is used to sweeten. I used Prosecco keep the bight red magenta color. Or even better is a Rosa Regal by Banfi for a pretty color as well if not better because it's unique red sparkling wine is aromatically hinted of rose petals and raspberries, Complementing the hibiscus!

Very refreshing as an iced tea - without the addition of any alcohol. I made this up in the evening and left for a few hours. The tea was ice cold by the time I got back. I enjoy hibiscus tea hot, in the winter. It was very refreshing to have this iced. Thanks.

What a treat! I really enjoyed this one Rita! I used agave syrup and champagne. This is going to be a great summer heat buster! Thanks for sharing!
