Hibiscus Iced Tea

Do you love the Hibiscus flower? If you are in a warm climate then you can see year-round but here it's only in summer so when you see the leaves start to come, you can feel the spring is in the air and when comes spring, then comes summer. And in hot summer days what better than iced tea to cool down. When you make it with hibiscus flowers, it's good for your body also.

This tea is good to prevent hypertension, lower Blood pressure, reduce blood sugar levels, keep your liver healthy, for girls,  it helps with menstrual cramps, help with depression, aid digestion and help with weight management. It's rich in Vitamin C, contains minerals such as flavonoids and has laxative properties.
