Tea and Fruit Salad

Hibiscus Tea and Fruit Salad combination

Hibiscus tea is a herbal infusion made from the dried petals of the hibiscus flower. It has a tangy, fruity flavor and a vibrant red color. It’s also rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, which can help boost your immune system and fight inflammation. Hibiscus tea is great for hydrating and cooling down on a hot day, and it pairs perfectly with fresh fruits.

Fruit salad is a simple and versatile dish that you can customize with whatever fruits you have on hand or in season. I like to use a mix of tropical fruits like pineapple, mango, papaya, kiwi, and banana, but you can also add berries, grapes, apples, or oranges. The key is to chop the fruits into bite-sized pieces and toss them with some lemon or lime juice to prevent browning and add some zing.

To make this recipe, you’ll need:

  • 4 cups of water
  • 1/4 cup of dried hibiscus petals (or 4 hibiscus tea bags)
  • 1/4 cup of honey (or your preferred sweetener)
  • 4 cups of mixed fresh fruits, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon or lime juice

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a small pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the hibiscus petals or tea bags and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the honey. Let the tea steep for another 10 minutes, then strain and discard the petals or tea bags. Transfer the tea to a pitcher and refrigerate until chilled.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the fruits with the lemon or lime juice. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. To serve, pour some hibiscus tea into a glass with ice and enjoy with a spoonful of fruit salad. You can also garnish your glass with some mint leaves or edible flowers for extra flair.

This recipe makes about 4 servings, but you can easily double or triple it if you’re hosting a party or a picnic. It’s a great way to impress your guests with a colorful and refreshing snack that’s also good for you. Hibiscus tea and fruit salad is a tropical treat that will make you feel like you’re on vacation!

I hope you enjoyed this and you’ll try this recipe soon.
