Hibiscus Flowers is an important source of vitamin C and antioxidants, commonly used to lower high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
It is naturally calorie and caffeine-free. This makes it the perfect alternative drink if you want to cut down on your caffeine intake.
Dried hibiscus is most commonly infused as a loose leaf tea. For a teacup, steep half a teaspoon (3-5g) of hibiscus flower in boiling water for 5 minutes and serve in a mug. You can use a teapot with infuser or a strainer to remove the flowers.It can be served hot or iced.
The tea can also be used as a base for juices and smoothies - you can create so many recipes by adding different seasonal fruits or spices. For example, if you add ginger or a squeeze of fresh orange, you get an uplifting drink.
Its flavour is naturally tangy, so a tiny bit of sugar or natural sweetener is often added.
