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 to prepare hibiscus tea.
Rich in mineral salts and vitamins from the A, B and C complex, the hibiscus has an elevated quantity of essential nutrients for body function. Due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties, hibiscus contributes to good digestion and reduces abdominal bloating through its purifying action. 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 very 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.
Orange Peel – according to historical accounts, the first orange trees appeared in India over 7000 years ago. It must have been in the 10th century that the first orange trees were produced for medicinal purposes in China. Orange Peels are an excellent natural antioxidant, rich in essential vitamins for strengthening the body's immunity. They can help fight abdominal swelling thanks to the strong presence of potassium in their composition. This natural revitalization can promote the reduction of free radicals, delaying the premature ageing of the skin. They can be a good option for improving blood circulation.

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 added sugars or artificial additives.
