Balinese Hibiscus and Lime Tea

I also managed to steal this recipe. It can be served hot but I prefer it as an iced tea. Its great for lowering blood pressure. Its full of antioxidants, a great anti inflammatory and great for circulation.

Ingredients  

  • 1 Fresh Hibsicus Flower or 2-3 dried Hibiscus Flowers or 1 Hibiscus tea bag

Steps

  1. Remove stem and stamen from the Hibiscus flower (skip if using dried hibiscus or teabag)
