The tea plant, besides making a delectable drink, has a lot of health benefits. The same can be said for hibiscus.
Hibiscus has been shown in studies to lower blood pressure and is a popular natural diuretic, which has been shown to be helpful to people with kidney troubles. And, yes, it is very tasty. And who can forget the beautiful showy variety of big hibiscus flowers. Incidentally, the tea is not actually made from the flowers. It is made from the calyces, which are the parts of the plant that form the supporting framework of the flowers.
Hibiscus Breeze makes an excellent ice tea and is one of our more popular ice teas at our Austin stores. Whether you want it hot or iced Hibiscus Breeze is a tantalizing tisane whose tangy sweetness will surely blossom in your mouth.
