What additives influence the production of pink tea?


Pink hibiscus flowers emit a rather subtle scent , but they make up for it with an intense, sour taste. The plant itself has many health properties. It was already known in ancient times for this reason, and in Egypt, hibiscus infusion was even called the red gold of the pharaohs. The benefits of the flower include anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties and those that help lower blood pressure and strengthen the body's immunity.

Hibiscus tea will certainly be of interest to people who want to take care of their figure! This is all due to the high content of fiber and unsaturated fatty acids, which give hibiscus its slimming properties. Moreover, it has a positive effect on digestion and is involved in cleansing the body of toxins.
