Hibiscus is a powerful tropical flower with a long list of health benefits (anti-inflammatory, digestive aid, metabolism-boosting, helps with cholesterol level and blood pressure maintenance). It also happens to produce the most brilliant, ruby red-colored tea with a prominent tart flavor. In this warming recipe the creaminess of the almond milk helps offset the harshness of the hibiscus, and the ginger adds a nice note of warmth and complexity, making this latte a great winter drink.


  • 1 tablespoon dried hibiscus flowers
  • 1″ piece ginger — shredded 1 tablespoon honey/any other sweetener of choice, or to taste (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon honey/any other sweetener of choice, or to taste (optional)
  • 1 green tea bag (optional)
  • 1½ cups hot water
  • 1½ cup unsweetened almond milk or other milk of choice (RFR tip — preferably raw and homemade)


  1. Combine hibiscus, ginger, green tea and water in a teapot or a large mug, keep covered while steeping.
  2. Remove the green tea bag after 2-4 minutes of steeping. Let the hibiscus steep for another 15-20 minutes. Warm up the milk if you prefer a hot latte. (skip this step if you want to keep it more raw-friendly)
  3. Pour the tea into a blender through a strainer. Add the milk and honey to the blender and blend until frothy and smooth. This latte also tastes great iced.
