Hibiscus Tea (Flor De Jamaica)

I first had Hibiscus tea in India and when I stopped for a visit in Colombia it was everywhere.... Not only is it tasty but it is good for you - yeah! Something I actually like and it's good for me.... It's tart like cranberries but sweet as well..
It's originally from Africa and was later introduced to Mexico. It has great medicinal values - it is said to be a diuretic, natural laxative, and best of all it lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. In Colombia you can find the actual dried flowers, here in Florida I have only found the tea but it's just as good, you can find it in most health food stores. So if you find it, get it....very soothing and delicious.
