Cold Brew Collagen Hibiscus Tea

We love cold brew tea - especially when it's made from Lake & Oak tea! 
This cold brew Rose Schisandra Glow recipe is perfect for after exercising or spending time outside. There's loads of skin-protecting antioxidants from hibiscus and rosehips, and cucumbers add freshness and a boost of hydration. A pinch of pink Himalayan salt boosts flavour and balances electrolyte levels. 
  • 1.5 cups prepared cold brew Rose Schisandra Glow
  • 1 tbsp collagen powder
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch pink Himalayan salt
  • cucumbers to top (optional)


In a jar or shaker, combine all ingredients. Shake to dissolve collagen and maple syrup. Pour over a glass filled with ice. Top with cucumber or fresh mint if desired. Serves 1.

*If you don't have time to cold brew, just make an extra-strength cup of Rose Schisandra Glow tea and add extra ice to cool down. 


How to cold brew tea:

Step 1: BLEND

Find your favourite 1 litre jar. Spoon in 1 1/2 tbsp of loose leaf tea. Bonus points for using your hands to break it up into little bits. This helps release some of the yummy essential oils we're after.

Step 2: CHILL

The hard part...cover your container with a lid or towel, and leave in the fridge for 6-24 hours. Overnight should do it. Warning: this part may induce thirst and cravings for refreshing beverages.

Step 3: STRAIN

Use a fine mesh sieve or cheese cloth and strain that baby! Wow what a good looking brew you have there. 

Step 4: REAP

Sip, store and enjoy the deliciousness you've long waited for. 

Steeped + strained tea will last a week or more in the fridge, just keep it covered.
