Today is Monday. Coming up with my very first post. Hope you will love it.
For me Hibiscus means a sacred red fire which can inspire you to do your best. Its bright color and lively looks connects it with puja. I have grown up seeing Ma offering it to Kali Thakur and other God – goddess.
You must have heard about Hibiscus shampoo and Hibiscus oil.
But today for you, i want to start with Hibiscus Tea.
Easy to make, godown of goodness and the best part is less pain and loads of gain.
Hibiscus tea lowers BP and i think that was the main thing that drew my attention.
Boil a glass of water.
Add 10-12 sun dried Hibiscus petels.
Squeeze half lemon in it
Chill it .
Add honey while serving.
While boiling u can add cinnamon stick or ginger or cloves or nutmeg if u wish.
I like without adding all this.
The magic is as soon as u add lemon juice the deep purple liquid turns into bright pink
Decorate with pineapple slice/ rose petel/ mint leaves.
Can be taken in morning or as an afternoon drink.
Shelf life- 24hrs to 48hrs in freeze.
