I just amde this tea exactly as written (without rum because it was for a baby shower), and it was so refreshing! Tangy and good. I want to have it in my regrigerator all of the time. Highly recommended.

Since I do not use teabags anymore, I buy the hibiscus infusion loose tea and brew my own tea from loose tea. This is a marvelously refreshing tea even without all of the other ingredients. It is also good for treating high blood pressure and a host of other ailments, easy to find on google

MileGena-You posted two comments about 2 recipes strating you couldnt find the ingrediants. Where do you live. Try Trader Joes, Whole Foods or ask your big chain grocer for the items. I did try this recipe and lessened the mount of honey. Very Refreshing.

I couldn't find Tazo Hibiscus tea bags at my grocer so I substituted with Raspberry tea bags. I think the recipe calls for too much lime. 1/2 cup of lime is enough.
