This is a wonderful light drink for the hot summer days. Occasionally, I use apple juice instead of orange juice and apple slices instead of oranges.

Makes four servings:

2 teabags hibiscus tea

2 cups of boiling water
1 tbsp mint leaves
2 tsp raspberry leaves (break a tea bag)

2 cups cold water and ice

Orange or lemon slices for garnish

Optional:  orange juice for sweetening

Brew hibiscus tea with mint leaves and raspberry leaves. Let stand for about 5-6 minutes. Cool the tea slightly, strain and add cold water and ice. Pour tea over additional ice. Float orange slices in each glass as garnish.
