    Default Strawberry Hibiscus Punch

    1 cup sugar
    6 hibiscus tea bags
    8 oz fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
    1 two-inch piece ginger, thinly sliced


    In a large saucepan, combine sugar with 4 cups water. Bring to a boil over medium-high, stirring until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes.


    Remove pan from heat and add tea bags, strawberries and ginger. Steep about 2 hours.


    Strain liquid into a pitcher and add 2 to 4 cups filtered water for desired level of sweetness.


    Serve over ice and garnish with strawberries.

    We used to suck on the small end of hibiscus flowers when I was a kid. Delicious!

    Sooo ... made the Strawberry Hibiscus Punch recipe as written.

    My daughter and I both agree that it's pretty sweet.

    I generally do not add sweetener to tea when I drink (either iced or hot).

    My husband and I had an agreement that the first time we prepared a new recipe, we'd make it as written so we could try it ... then make adjustments.

    Next time I make this punch, I'm not going to add any sugar / sweetener. After that, if it needs a little sweetener, I'll add 1/2 c sugar and see how that goes.

    I'll let y'all know whether it tastes better sweetened or unsweetened.

    The ginger is a very nice touch.
