Hibiscus tea has a tart, fruity, and delightful flavor profile when comparing it to traditional kombucha. Add in the lime juice (or a squeezed lime) to balance the tart flavor- or experiment with other fruits to change the flavor to better fit your tastebuds. Hibiscus tea has a vibrant red color to it, and is usually enjoyed either hot or cold.
Hibiscus tea can either be the main tea ingredient when brewing kombucha, or it can be added during the secondary fermentation process as the main flavor for this brew. For this recipe, we will be using the tea in the secondary fermentation process.
