Hikers Iced Tea

Here's an iced tea recipe from the Mountain Rose Herb Blog

This delicious iced tea is the perfect treat to quench your thirst and restore electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals during a long hike in the forest or after a hot day digging in the garden. I like to take a cold quart with me when heading out for an adventure in the mountains seeking blooms, berries, and birds, but this nutritive tea really is wonderful whenever thirst strikes.

Hiker’s Iced Tea
• 1 part Nettle Leaf
• 1 part Red Clover Blossoms
• 1 part Alfalfa Leaf
• 2 parts Hibiscus High Tea
• 1/8 tsp per brewed quart Himalayan Pink Salt
Blend all of the herbs together and store in an airtight container. Steep 1 cup of the herbal blend per quart of boiling water overnight and add 1/8 tsp of mineral rich Himalayan Pink Salt to the tea as it cools. Refrigerate or pour over ice for a replenishing drink.
