Hibiscus Tea Is Supposed to Lower Blood Pressure


Hibiscus flowers are gorgeous, elegant showgirls.

They dazzle onlookers with their beauty.


Did you know that tea made from these flowers is a brilliant deep red color?

And that it tastes delicious?


Also, did you know the tea has been attributed to helping lower blood pressure?

Truthfully, I love the tea even though the only 100 pure, organic variety I have been able to find is pricey----$5.59 for 16 bags in the box.

But there are little one word messages attached to every tea bag and when I see them, they make me smile.


Here are the messages from a recent big batch of hibiscus tea. It went into a container in the refrigerator for sipping throughout the day:


The blood pressure readings have definitely gone down and for that, alone, I'm extremely grateful as the thought of taking medication was very unappealing.



This is a yummy tea, too.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF HIBISCUS TEA?

Yes, I like it too and I also love Jasmine tea. As a matter of fact I'm a tea lover...I have Earl Gray for breakfast every day. I'd much rather have tea than coffee which makes me ill. Glad the blood pressure is down. I would hate to take medicine for that too!

This flower is in a lot of herbal tea blends. I did not know about the bp though.

I LOVE Hibiscus tea too and have a cup EVERY DAY in the morning, sometimes at night. Love the flavor. I haven't found a pure brand but I drink Tazo passion tea which the first ingredient is hibiscus flowers. If you are in the US and watch Dr. Oz, he had a part of his show talking about hibiscus and lowering blood pressure! That's why I started drinking it and surprisingly, I don't take BP meds anymore and my BP is good. I think this tea has helped alot. Love your pictures of this yummy tea.
