Units Scale
  • 4 large strawberries
  • 3 large blackberries
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 navel orange
  • 1/3 cup honey (or agave nectar)
  • 1 Tbsp dried hibiscus flowers (not tea)
  • 3 large sprigs of fresh mint or 10-12 fresh mint leaves
  • 2.5 cups water


Place sliced strawberries, blackberries and sugar into a quart jar.

Juice the orange into the jar.

Stir to combine and let sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.

Muddle the mixture to completely crush the berries.

Add honey and set the berry mixture aside.

Bring water to a boil.

Remove from heat and add dried hibiscus flowers and fresh mint to the hot water.

Let mixture steep for 5 minutes.

Strain out the flowers and mint.

Pour half of the hot tea into the quart jar with the berry mixture.

Stir until the honey has dissolved, then add in the rest of the tea.

Cover and place the jar in the refrigerator until it has cooled completely. (At least 3-4 hours, preferably overnight.)

Shake the jar well before serving the tea in highball glasses over ice.

Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.



You MUST let the tea cool completely in the refrigerator before you drink it. Do NOT pour the tea over ice while it’s hot, warm, or even room temperature. The ice will melt quickly and you’ll end up with a SUPER watery drink with much less flavor. Make the tea the day before - or at least morning before - you intend to serve it so it can chill completely.
