Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar or to taste
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon sencha
  • 1 tablespoon hibiscus
  • ice

Instructions

  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, then add the sugar and salt. Mix to dissolve.
  2. Divide the 2 cups water into 3/4 cup and 1 1/4 cups water in two small heat-proof cups or containers.
  3. Add the sencha to the container with 3/4 cup water, and add the hibiscus to the container with 1 1/4 cups water. Let the sencha steep for 20 minutes, and let the hibiscus steep for 10 minutes. Once each tea is done steeping, remove the leaves from each container, and let the tea cool slightly.
  4. Fill a glass half full with ice, then pour over the sencha and hibiscus teas. Give it a stir, then enjoy!
