Hibiscus and citrus make a beautiful ruby-hued steep.
1. Heat water to 208˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 5-7 minutes.
For loose leaf iced teas, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass and double the steep time.
I have a cup of herbal tea each night before bed and have done so for many years. Hands down, Raspberry Nectar is my favorite herbal tea. The aroma and flavor bring me back to raspberry picking as a child. If you like fresh raspberries, this is a tea in which to indulge.
While fresh and hot, this blend has a nice taste to it. As soon as it starts to cool, however, the taste becomes bitter. Maybe I didn't steep it for long enough, or something else that I probably did wrong, but I was left a little disappointed when I couldn't enjoy my favorite fruit in tea form.
