We use the Hibiscus Sabdariffa plant in the making of this Tea. However, they are, in fact, several hundreds of species of this plant. Nevertheless, this particular species has had the most scientific studies to back its consumption for health reasons.

Reasons to drink this Hibiscus Tea
This remarkable flower has taken the world by storm. Why? Because of Hibiscus Tea Benefits. Every cup brewed of this delectable infusion has the guarantee of being caffeine-free. This is because it does not come from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant. As such, it's not technically a Tea in the conventional sense. Instead, it is a Tisane. However, this term is seldom used.
Many people are making the switch to caffeine-free Herbal Teas. This is because of the side effects experienced from caffeine overconsumption such as jitteriness and sleeplessness. Furthermore, pregnant women should not exceed 200 mg of caffeine per day, according to NHS Choices. With our Hibiscus Tea (Cut), however, one doesn't have to worry about any caffeine at all!
But this is just one of the many reasons to drink this Tea. It also contains a wealth of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants capable of improving daily life. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-9 and C

Benefits of Hibiscus Tea (cut)
1 in 3 adults experience high blood pressure in the UK alone. Hibiscus Tea (Cut), however, could help combat this. The American Heart Association (AHA) have the answers as to why and how this happens. They conducted a study that saw sixty-five people aged between 30 and 70, all of whom deemed "at risk" from high blood pressure, split into two groups.
The first group drank Hibiscus Tea three times a day. The second group, meanwhile, received a placebo. After six weeks, the results established that the Hibiscus Group "showed an average fall of 7.2 per cent in blood pressure due to Hibiscus, with some recording a 13.2 per cent drop. The placebo group recorded a 1.3 per cent drop".
