Alternative Tea

A couple of years ago my cousin Shalini & her husband went on their honeymoon to Austria. Among some of the gifts that they had bought was a packet of Hibisku-Ginkgo Tee (or Hibiscus Ginkgo Tea) from Germany makers Bad Heilbrunner. I do not think that my dad has liked the taste but I have.

Hibisbus tea is made from the hibiscus flower called Hibiscus sabdariffa. Hibiscus tea comes from the genus Hibiscus, in the mallow family (Malvaceae). A recent study revealed that hibiscus tea contains a number of different antioxidants that may help to protect against cell-damaging free radicals. These teas also may help control high blood pressure & also for lowering cholesterol. It is helps to enrich your immune system as it is rich in Vitamin C. Added with Ginkgo it is a revitalizing & refreshing alternate to our normal tea & coffee. It also makes a splendid ice tea (I had mine served hot this evening) and adding some juice to it gives it an added kick. I only added a few squeezes of lime.
