Hibiscus flower tea makes a beautiful crimson, fruity-tasting tea which is lovely served over ice with slices of orange or strawberries and fresh mint sprigs. It can be sweetened with stevia or fruit juice, or made into a lovely spritzer using the stevia version of Chi Original fizzy drink.
Hibiscus has traditionally been used to assist in lowering blood pressure and can have a cooling effect on the body.
