Sparkling Hibiscus Tea

After a seemingly endless winter, we’ve finally been getting some really beautiful weather. So it’s time to make my favorite spring drink: sparkling hibiscus tea. It’s light, refreshing, and has a lovely pink color.

A couple of years ago, I had a delicious iced hibiscus tea at a local restaurant. We decided to create our own version to enjoy at home and came up with this easy recipe.

The tea mixture does have to chill, so you will want to make that portion ahead. I like to keep a Mason jar of it in the fridge so I can mix up a drink whenever I feel like it.

We use Tazo’s Passion blend for the hibiscus tea and San Pelligrino for the sparkling water, but feel free to use your own favorites.

Sparkling Hibiscus Tea

Servings 8


  • 6 cups water
  • 6 hibiscus tea bags
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • sparkling water


  • Bing the water to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the tea bags, remove the pan from the heat, and let steep 3-5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and whisk in the honey. Let the mixture cool until it reaches room temperature, then transfer it to a pitcher or jar and chill it in the fridge.
  • For each drink, fill a tall glass or pint Mason jar with crushed ice and add about 6 ounces of the tea mixture. Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice, then top it off with sparkling water. Gently stir to combine.
