"Aromatic Teas and Herbal Infusions" by Laura Fronty
(Makes 2 Cups)
Peel from 1/2 apple or a few cubes of dried apple
zest from oorganic orange
4 teaspoons hibiscus flowers
2 cups water
Finely dice apple peel and orange zest. Heat the teapot in advance and add the hibiscus, apple peel and orange zest. Add boiling water and let steep for at least 10 minutes. Sweeten to taste.
Notes/Results: A nice tangy-citrusy combination. I sweetened it with some local honey and also added some vanilla. (The author mentioned that vanilla, cinnamon or ginger could be added if desired). A good choice for afternoon or evening, it would be nice iced and the pretty dark pink color would make it fun for a shower, luncheon or child's tea party. I would make it again.
