The tartness of currants, cranberries, and hibiscus complements the sweetness of elderberries and rosehips, while rooibos adds a smooth and mellow base to the blend to our Happy Hibiscus. Each of these ingredients brings its own unique flavor and health benefits to our Happy Hibiscus tea blend.
Currants are small, dark berries that come in different varieties such as black currants, red currants, and white currants. They have a tart and slightly sweet taste. Currants are rich in antioxidants, vitamins (such as vitamin C), and minerals like potassium and iron. They are known for their potential anti-inflammatory properties and may help support immune health.
Elderberries are small, dark purple berries that grow on the elder tree. They have a sweet and tangy flavor. Elderberries are packed with antioxidants and contain vitamins A, B, and C. They also contain flavonoids that may have immune-boosting properties. Elderberry tea is often consumed to support the immune system and alleviate symptoms of colds and flu.
Cranberries are bright red berries known for their tart taste. They are rich in antioxidants, particularly proanthocyanin’s, which may help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs) by inhibiting bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract walls. Cranberry tea is often consumed for its potential benefits in supporting urinary tract health.
Rosehips are the fruit of the wild rose plant. They are typically red or orange and have a tangy flavor. Rosehips are a great source of vitamin C and contain vitamins A, E, and K. They are rich in antioxidants and may have anti-inflammatory properties. Rosehip tea is often enjoyed for its potential immune-boosting effects and its ability to support healthy skin.
Hibiscus is a vibrant flower that is used to make tea. It has a tart taste like cranberries. Hibiscus tea is known for its high levels of antioxidants, including flavonoids and anthocyanins. It may help lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, and support heart health. Hibiscus tea is also believed to have diuretic properties and may aid in weight management.
Rooibos, also known as red bush tea, is a herbal tea made from the leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant native to South Africa. It has a naturally sweet and nutty flavor. Rooibos tea is caffeine-free and rich in antioxidants, including aspalathin and quercetin. It is often consumed for its potential anti-inflammatory properties, digestive benefits, and its ability to promote relaxation and better sleep.
When combined, these ingredients create a flavorful and nutritious herbal tea blend.
