Native to South Africa but now grown across the world with majority of productions found in India and Southeast Asia, Roselle flower tisane has increasingly become popular in the last several decades. Studies have shown that the calyx is packed with calcium, niacin, riboflavin, and iron. It is the main ingredient in Mexico's "té de Jamaica" and can be enjoyed both hot and cold. This refreshing beverage may as well be one of the world's superdrinks, second to tea!
BENEFITS: This tisane is considered a tonic and an aperitif owing to its sour taste. Research suggests that Hibiscus sabdariffa is effectively used in folk medicines for treatment of hypertension and inflammatory conditions, and helps with weight-reduction.
