Homemade iced tea

Today we will prepare a iced tea (karkade) with citrus fruits and strawberries. Karkade in the countries of the East is called "red tea", "Sudanese rose" and "drink of the Pharaohs". It represents dried flowers of roses, namely hibiscus. Sourness will cheer up on a hot day, and the berry will create a summer mood. In the recipe, we suggest drinking it cold, but also hot in the heat, it refreshes perfectly. This drink is successfully combined with other types of tea in a ratio of 1:1. Be sure to try it!
