Two of the main reasons why I love using hibiscus flowers in a variety of culinary recipes are because they provide some pretty nifty health benefits while also adding a delightfully tart-like cranberry flavor into the mix. And if there’s one thing that I definitely love, it’s cranberry.
I’m happy to report that the resulting drink turned out even better than I could have imagined. Today I’ll be sharing the exact recipe that I follow whenever I’m in the mood for making an iced cranberry hibiscus tea.
Not only does this recipe make what very well could be the best tasting iced tea I’ve ever tried, but it also helps with lowering blood pressure, making it an ideal all-natural source of relief for anybody who suffers from hypertension.
