Hot & Cold Ginger, Lemon Infused Tea

1 cup (240 ml) water


Makes 1 serving. You'll need: small saucepan, teacup or mug, fine-mesh strainer, teaspoon


In a small saucepan, bring the water and ginger to a boil. Remove from the heat, then add the tea bags. Let steep for 10 minutes, or until the water has turned a dark pink color.


Remove the tea bags and reheat if the liquid has cooled. While the tea is reheating, add the infused simple syrup and lemon juice to the bottom of a teacup. Remove the tea from heat and use a fine-mesh strainer to separate the liquid from solids over the mug.


Use a teaspoon to stir the mixture together, then add a lemon wedge and hibiscus leaves to garnish.

To make a chilled iced tea, follow the directions above, but after you remove the tea bags, let the ginger hibiscus tea cool to room temperature. Once cool, add the hibiscus ginger tea, infused simple syrup, and fresh lemon juice to a shaker tin with ice. Shake vigorously for 15 seconds or until very cold. Strain over a glass of your choice filled with fresh ice, then garnish with a lemon wedge and floating hibiscus leaves.
Note: If you don’t have the supplies to infuse the simple syrup with CBD or THC, substitute for regular simple syrup, then add your favourite unflavoured tincture (at your preferred dose) into the mug (hot) or shaker tin (cold), then follow the directions as written.
