Rosemary Gladstar’s Hibiscus Tea
A wonderfully refreshing blend, High-C Tonic tea provides bioflavonoids and vitamin C in an organic, naturally biochelated base so that all the nutrients are readily available for absorption. High levels of vitamins supplied in therapeutic dosages, such as commercial vitamins, may be useful to combat illness, but for daily maintenance a more naturally occurring does is better for you (and your child).
4 Parts Rosehips
3 Parts hibiscus
2 parts lemongrass
1 part cinnamon chips
Boil 5 cups of water. Get out your glass coffee press, tea pot, or glass jar. Once the water has boiled pour it into the container you’re going to use. Add 4 Tbs. of rosehips, 3 Tbs. of hibiscus flowers, 2 Tbs. lemongrass, and 1 Tbs. cinnamon chips.
Let the tea sit for 20 minutes to a half an hour. Make sure to cover the steeping pot or container with a towel so that all the volatile oils stay in the pot. After it has steeped. Strain and Enjoy!
