Herbal Iced Cooler
- 8 1/2 cups water, preferably filtered or spring
- 8 hibiscus-type herb tea bags, such as Celestial Seasonings Red Zinger
- 1 12-ounce can frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
- 1 orange, sliced
- 1 lemon, sliced
- Garnish: fresh sprigs of spearmint or pineapple mint, and/or honeysuckle
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Drop in tea bags, remove from heat, and let stand till lukewarm. Remove teabags and squeeze them, to get every drop of flavor. Discard "squoze" tea bags. Combine steeped herb tea with juice concentrate, the reserved cold water, and fruit slices. Chill deeply. Serve, preferably in chilled glasses, garnished with mint and/or honeysuckle.
