Rose - the queen of the heart - is delicious, cooling, and soothing.
Packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, the sour and astringent nature of joyful hibiscus does wonders in cooling the body, while being supportive to the immune system.
A bit of jasmine green tea adds to the floral notes, while giving a minimal jolt of caffeine, if you wish.
I'm turning to this delicious, heart lifting recipe over and over this year, whilst enjoying the patio on a hot summer day.
-2 TBSP dried hibiscus flowers
-2 TBSP dried rose petals
-1 TBSP jasmine green tea (optional)
