It's Spring and we are heading toward warmer weather, so I've been experimenting with different tea flavors. I like using as many real ingredients as I can, but sometimes we have to substitute or modify what we have on hand. This tea is cheery and bright and can also be heated for a warm evening drink.
5 Tablespoons dried Organic Whole Hibiscus Petals
½ cup dried cranberries (made without oil, sweetener or sulfur dioxide) or fresh cranberries
2 teaspoons fresh chopped ginger (I used jarred today, similar to this one - Emperor's Kitchen Condiments, Chopped Ginger , 4.5 oz
4 cups boiled water
2 teaspoons Pure Maple Syrup, or to taste
2 cups fresh orange juice (I used Uncle Matt's Organic 100% orange juice today, as I was out of oranges ...)
