1 cup dried hibiscus leaves
4 cups water
1 small Sugar Baby watermelon, cut into small pieces 
1 cup agave or a sweetener of choice
¼ cup lime juice
Zest of 2 limes
1 cup ice

Place hibiscus leaves and water in a large pot. 

Bring water to a rolling boil and then turn the heat off and let stand.

Add lime zest and let the tea steep for about 4 hours.

Once the tea has cooled, strain the liquid into a large pitcher. 

Juice the watermelon pieces, including the rind, in a juicer.

Strain the watermelon juice and add it to the hibiscus mixture.

Add lime juice and agave to sweeten. 

Add a little more agave or sweetener if tanginess does not suit your palate. 

Pour into a glass with ice. Garnish with pieces of watermelon if desired!
