drank Hibiscus by Starwest Botanicals
25 tasting notes

A few months ago I read that Hibiscus has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for lowering blood pressure. Well, my blood pressure has been a problem for close to ten years now, and I was willing to try anything to reduce the amount of pharmaceutical pills I was taking each day. I started drinking 4 cups of this tea every day and it took almost four weeks, but I have seen a 20 point decrease in my Systolic and a 10 point decrease in my Diastolic. The best part is that I’ve cut my meds in half and have maintained these lower numbers.

As for the tea itself, it takes a bit of time to get used to, but when you learn to flavor it with other herbs and green teas, it makes a quite refreshing drink called Jamaica (pronounced huh-mika), a favorite iced tea in Central America and Mexico. On hot summer days, a 50/50 mix of hibiscus and green tea, chilled and slightly sweetened rivals traditional Iced tea, and in my opinion, out performs it. The combo is an anti-oxidant superstar with the added caveat of l-theanine.
