Ingredients
For serving
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime slices
Instructions
  1. Add water to a medium saucepan.
  2. Place hibiscus flowers in a looseleaf tea bag and set in the pot of water. If you do not have a tea bag and instead want to use a fine mesh strainer, you can place the flowers directly in the water.
  3. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and allow to cook 15-20 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove tea bag and allow pot to cool for about 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Or if straining through a fine mesh strainer, allow to cool slightly before doing so.
  5. Transfer tea to the the fridge to cool (at least 2 hours).
  6. Once the tea has cooled, add lime juice and stevia and stir.
  7. When ready to serve, cut a slit in each lime slice and place on the rim of the serving glasses. Fill serving glasses with ice cubes and pour hibiscus iced tea over the ice cubes.
Notes
*Prep time does not include time for tea to cool
*Hibiscus has not been tested for its FODMAP content at the time of writing this recipe. My best guess is that it is low FODMAP or if it does contain FODMAPs, that the beneficial properties may outweigh any difficulty in digestion.
