This herbal tea is made out of Hibiscus; this herbal tea is a crimson beauty that exudes floral and tarty flavour. This delicious drink can be enjoyed both hot and cold at any time of the day, but especially after a night out, as it can prevent liver damage. Several hundred hibiscus species vary by the location and climate they grow in, but Hibiscus sabdariffa is most commonly used to make hibiscus tea. Hibiscus sabdariffa originates from North Africa and Southeast Asia and can now be seen in most tropical and subtropical regions. Hibiscus tea was historically used in African countries to decrease body temperature, treat heart disease and soothe sore throats. However, in Iran, it is used to treat high blood pressure. 

The benefits of hibiscus for hypertension patients can help to speed up blood circulation by lowering blood viscosity. Organic acids, polysaccharides, and antioxidants all contribute to this pharmacology of the flavonoids found in hibiscus petals. In addition, the hibiscus contains a high amount of vitamin C, which helps boost the body's resistance to disease. Anthocyanins are an antioxidant flavonoid found in hibiscus tea. In terms of lowering blood pressure, Anthocyanins help prevent atherosclerosis or the narrowing and stiffening of blood vessels. According to a study conducted by Farida et al., a person can avoid blood vessel stiffness, thin the blood flow, and dilate blood vessels by drinking hibiscus tea 3gram every 2x a day for one week. These elements can help lower blood pressure. Hibiscus tea can also prevent hypertension in people with normal blood pressure.

According to Taiwanese scientists, hibiscus tea can control cholesterol and risk heart disease. The extract can also be used to treat high blood pressure and liver disorder. It also improves blood circulation, reduces stress levels, protects the body against bacterial attack, reduces weight and prevents bladder infection and constipation. This natural-coloured tea has a delicious taste and a pleasant fragrance. Hibiscus tea is considered healthier and more valuable than conventional teas because it is rich in Vitamin C
