If you’re looking for a refreshing Summer drink then this Very Berry Mint Hibiscus Tea is sure to hit the spot!

My girlfriend introduced me to this tea some years back.

Actually it was around the Christmas holidays, and i received a nice gift package with a tea set and a number of teas. That is when i first tried and fell in love with this tea.

Then i was drinking it hot, but it’s much better brewed and chilled. And definitely one of my go to summer iced teas. So where did these BEAUTIFUL flowers come from anyway? 

Well the ancestors of today’s modern hibiscus hybrids were sprinkled all around the globe, following the Equator from one warm, tropical land to the next.

The eight hibiscus species that are considered to be the ancestors of the modern exotic hibiscus were originally native to Mauritius, Madagascar, Fiji, Hawaii, and either China or India.

Read more here about this amazing flower and its benefits.

You may have seen this beverage as of late coming out of Starbucks but i am telling you forget that over priced version and start make your own at home.

The health benefits of hibiscus tea are UNBELIEVABLE so go find yourself some shade, and allow yourself some time to relax because you deserve it darling!
