Caffeine Free Hibiscus Ice Tea

I have nothing against caffeine, my metabolism ;however, tells a different story. As much as I love my black teas, and lattes, and matcha, it does affect my sleep and sometimes my body is begging me to stop consuming so much caffeine. So I listened.

I created the most delicious, refreshing ice tea, and it has been on repeat because I just can’t get enough! There is a note to mention about the type of hibiscus tea you purchase. Most hibiscus teas are actually mixed with other flavors even though they say hibiscus tea, so be sure to check the ingredients if you want to taste this tea in the true form it was recipe tested on. I like to use this one, it is my absolute favorite! With that said, this tea is guaranteed to be a favorite when serving to friends and family. Your caffeine free friends will especially appreciate it!

If you don’t like the tart after taste the hibiscus tea normally has, you should still give this tea a try because the way I make it, that tartness flavor is almost non existent!

Lastly, a fun fact about pronunciation. Did you know that it is pronounced “HI-biscus” and not “HIB-iscus?” It took me a long time to figure that one out, all those baristas were to polite to correct me all those years. 😀 Anyways, with spring in the air and summer around the corner, this easy ice tea recipe is a must try!

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!
