I'm so obsessed with the Berry Hibiscus Tea from Starbucks. It's the perfect amount sweet and refreshing. I know people are all about the autumn drinks right now, but I can't get enough of this iced tea despite the cold temps! So, I recreated it, with some inspiration from this blog.
ICED BERRY HIBISCUS TEA
1 cup brewed yerba mate tea, cooled
2 Tbsp. hibiscus simple syrup (more or less to taste)
a handful of fresh raspberries
Mash the raspberries with a fork in the bottom of a glass. Add ice cubes and pour the tea and simple syrup over; stir.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp. dried hibiscus flowers
Heat the sugar and water over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, add hibiscus and let steep for about 10 minutes. Strain hibiscus using coffee filter or cheese cloth.
