Hibiscus Tea- The Several Health Benefits

Along with a well-balanced diet, we need certain other things like fruits, salads, drinks etc. 

The hibiscus tea is one of them. Even Egyptian pharaohs found it to be the most important beverage of the royal pedigree. It could be consumed either hot or cold. 

It is made from deep red calyxes of the hibiscus flower that is rich in anthocyanins, fruit acids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and bioflavonoids.
