Hibiscus Iced Tea

There’s just something about tea. Hot or cold, fruity or flowery, tea is a delightfully friendly and versatile drink. It comforts us in the cold and refreshes us after a long, hot summer day. Best of all, tea is the perfect companion for all kinds of tasty finger foods! This flavorful Hibiscus Iced Tea pairs perfectly with sweet or savory treats like Rhubarb Lemon Bars  or Mini Quiche. Yum! So the next time you’re having a party, make it a tea party. Cheers!
