Bleeding Heart Hibiscus Tea
One of the directors I work with recently brought me some fresh hibiscus flowers. He buys them all the time in Las Cruces, New Mexico and said he’d bring me some each time he goes there. The flowers are a great way to make a tea with many health benefits. He left them hanging on my door and they were a mysterious surprise, but I’m so glad he gave me a new introduction to these lovely flowers.
“The health benefits of hibiscus tea include relief from high blood pressure and high cholesterol, as well as digestive, immune system, and inflammatory problems. It helps to cure liver disease and reduces the risk of cancer. It can also speed up the metabolism and help in healthy, gradual weight loss. Hibiscus tea is rich in vitamin C, minerals and various antioxidants, while also helping in the treatment of hypertension and anxiety.” From: http://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/beverage/hibiscus-tea.html
