Hibiscus + Spearmint + Watermelon Herbal Infusion Tea

Hibiscus + Spearmint + Watermelon Herbal Infusion Tea

Summer is around the corner and kids love this mix of herbs and fruit tea infusion as it is beneficial and hydrating. 
First off, what is a tea/herbal infusion? An infusion is a strong medicinal tea. Infusions are made by steeping herbs such as leaves & flowers in water. Whether that be a cold or hot Infusion: you can however steep the tea or herbs on how strong and how the taste is for you. But you can also leave it to infuse in the fridge for a certain amount of time depending on how you like it.

Here is our Hibiscus + Spearmint + Watermelon Herbal Infusion Tea.

We use 1 pint size mason jars for this cold tea infusion.

-1 tablespoon of Hibiscus flowers ( hibiscus is packed with antioxidants, supports heart health and reduces cholesterol levels)

-1 tablespoon of spearmint leaves (spearmint reduces inflammation, promotes digestion and helps with IBS irritable bowel syndrome)

-About 3 scoops of fresh watermelon (watermelon is good for dehydration during the summer) I used a tablespoon for the scoops. We use fresh watermelon from the store. We usually get the mini seedless watermelon.

1 tsp of rosehips (rosehips is a rich source of vitamin C)

Add all the ingredients into a pint sized mason jar. Add filtered water to top of jar. Close lids and leave in the refrigerator for about 3 hours. You can leave it overnight but 3 hours is enough time for it to infuse. Once 3 hours is up. Strain the herbs and take out the watermelon chunks. I will usually put the watermelon chunks that’s been infused with the herbs back into the pint sized jars. You can add ice to it if you’d like and serve.

Great for the whole family and great for kids (they enjoy eating the watermelon chunks at the end)
