Red Heart Tea

I found this recipe for Red Heart Tea.  This would make a perfect "red drink" to go with soul food.  (It literally seems to be any  red-colored beverage, though it leans toward fruity flavors.)  With hibiscus and rooibos, it touches on traditional Afro-Caribbean ingredients before people started thinking of red drink as Kool-Aid or soda.  

This is why it annoys me when I see food pyramids that say only "drink water" without any healthy beverages listed.  There are lots of things that give you nutrients or other health benefits more than plain water.  Why shouldn't we take a cultural tradition and do something with it that is both delicious and healthy?
