Gunpowder Green Tea with Hibiscus Flowers - loose - organic


2.5 oz. Enjoy this delicious tea iced or hot. The hibiscus flowers impart a tang and snap that enhance the mellowness of the green tea. The hibiscus is full of vitamin C and the green tea contains antioxidants and polyphenols. This isn't just good for you, though, but tastes wonderful. Brew 1 tsp in 10 ounces of freshly boiled water for a refreshing cup of hot tea, or brew 1 tsp in 4 oz of freshly boiled water, then add ice and a spritz of lemon for a bracing glass of deep pink iced tea. If you want an easy, wonderful cocktail, brew the tea just a little longer (5 to 7 minutes), add a few tablespoons of simple syrup, the juice of half a lemon, and two jiggers of vodka to the iced tea, shake in a cocktail shaker, and pour into two martini glasses. For an elegant and beautiful cocktail, rim the glasses with hibiscus sugar before you add the cocktails to the glass.

Both ingredients are organic and free trade.
