Well, so, this is my newest craze: Hibiscus Infusion (Tea). Actually not fair to post an empty bottle with just the flowers in them , but hey, it's proof that I drunk it.
I buy my dried organic hibiscus flowers on line and then make a tea out of that. I love the big infuser bottle as I can drink it in stages.
So, why hibiscus? A wise nutritional savvy friend of mine, @SimonePlaut, gave me the tip. .
I had known about hibiscus, it had slipped my mind to actually use it!
So here are the benefits of hibiscus tea, also known as Agua de Jamaica:
It include its ability to support the body with optimal blood pressure, cholesterol, digestive and immune system, and so much more. It is rich in vitamin C, minerals, and antioxidants.
When making it I allow the boiled water to cool down to about 70-80'C, once it's cooled down significantly more, I add some lemon essential oil, couple of drops of lavender essential oil, Ylang Ylang and ocotea essential oil. Ocotea helps balance pancreatic enzymes.
So, ok, you may choose to add some stevia as the hibiscus tastes similar to cranberry juice and may be a bit too sour without being sweetened.
