Coastal Tea

Happy Memorial Day . My thoughts are with those families who have lost loved ones in pursuit of keeping the United States safe from harm, of keeping me and my family safe this day. Thank you .

For those of you hitting the beach, boating or picnicing here's an easy and special treat for a cold refreshing iced tea. 


Coastal Tea




We love homemade iced teas. Our recipe is a big hit and so we thought we'd share it with you.
What you will need
  • 1 large pot filled with a gallon of cold water 
  • 1/4 cup of dried hibiscus flowers (found in the herb section of many organic markets or in most Spanish markets found as Sorrel)
  • 5 green tea bags-more if you like it stronger (cut and remove strings and tabs)
  • 1 orange cut into slices or two tangerines or  two clementines cut into slices
  • Honey
Simply toss the tea bags, orange slices and dried hibiscus flowers into the pot and bring to a boil and turn the pot off. Leave the tea to steep for a good half hour. Strain and add honey to taste. Chill.
Refreshing and gorgeous red, this bottle of tea is quite alluring.

 Serve at coastal beach parties, bring as a hostess gift wrapped with a jute bow, tuck a bottle  into your beach basket or stash a bottle  on the boat.

Just have fun and have an excellent day.
