If you’re looking for a delicious, healthy (caffeine-free) drink, this is it. This brightly colored cold brew hibiscus tea is a nutritional powerhouse and bursting with antioxidants.



  • Two tablespoons of pure dried hibiscus or one organic hibiscus tea bag
  • 400 ml filtered water
  • Optional (and personal):
  • One tablespoon of date paste (hibiscus tea is tart when unsweetened)
  • A splash of lemon or lime juice (I used the juice of half a lime)
  • A few cloves (discard when you serve the tea)
  • A few mint leaves (discard when you serve the tea)
  • A cinnamon stick (discard when you serve the tea)
  • A little piece of fresh ginger (discard when you serve the tea)


  1. Pour 400 ml water in a bottle and add the other ingredients. Add additional spices and herbs, as desired. Cover the bottle and let chill in the fridge overnight or at least a few hours. I wouldn’t recommend more than 24 hours because it may get too bitter. When the tea is brewed it will turn a beautiful deep dark ruby red color.
  2. Take out the tea bag or if you use dried leaves discard the dried hibiscus. Shake and enjoy.


If you don’t want to add any sweetener cinnamon and lime are a great way to take away the tartness of hibiscus tea. Hibiscus tea lasts up to a week in the fridge.
