Hibiscus - scientifically called "Hibiscus L.", the hibiscus is a plant belonging to the Malvaceae family with about 300 species. However, only a few of these species are edible, such as the popular Hibiscus sabdariffa used in hibiscus tea.
Rich in mineral salts and vitamins from the A, B and C complex, the hibiscus has a high quantity of essential nutrients for normal body function. Due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties, hibiscus contributes to good digestion and reduced abdominal bloating. In addition, it helps in strengthening defences and muscle relaxation. It also contains benefits for cognitive, renal and intestinal functions.
In Greco-Roman and Egyptian mythologies, hibiscus represents the female universe directly related to the goddesses Aphrodite, Venus and Isis. There are many myths, legends and traditions that surround this flower, including in Tahiti where young women identify their love status through the position of the hibiscus in the ears. According to this tradition, women who have placed hibiscus in the corner of their right ear are available to find a mate. Otherwise, they will have already found you.

Learn how to prepare your cold tea:
Put two tablespoons of tea in 1.5L of boiled water, let it cool and then put it in the fridge. If you want to add sugar to your tea, you should do so while it is hot. For a healthier option, add 1 tablespoon of stevia (do not steep it for longer than 3 minutes as your drink will be too sweet). This way, you get an ICE TEA without any added sugars or artificial preservatives.
