April Showers Have Brought May Flowers! May 07 2015, 0 Comments

We’ve all been waiting for the beautiful colours of May flowers to arrive and finally they are here! But we are not only enjoying them in our gardens and on our dining room tables, we’re also enjoying them in our tea.

By steeping the petals and leaves of certain flowers you can discover the deliciously aromatic and beautifully coloured flower teas each with its own unique set of health benefits.

Here are three flowers you’ll love sipping this May:

Hibiscus Herbal- Made from the flower of a hibiscus plant, hibiscus tea is a tart-tasting herbal tea often used as a replacement for high-calorie sugary beverages. Dieters love the naturally sweet flavor and hibiscus tea has been linked to lowering high blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Rose Petal Herbal – This aromatic tea has a pleasant taste and important health benefits such as being used to fight against depression, fatigue and insomnia. It helps strengthen your immune system and is wonderful if you have a cold coming on.

Lavender Herbal – This delicate tasting and aromatic tea is used for promoting relaxation and reducing stress. The essential aromatic oils are released during the steeping process.
