Cold Lemon Hibiscus Tea (Plant-Based, Antioxidant-Rich)

Cold Lemon Hibiscus Tea (Plant-Based, Antioxidant-Rich)

DID YOU KNOW? Hibiscus tea is loaded with antioxidants and could be helpful in reducing oxidative stress in the body.

Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals invade the body and the body doesn’t have enough antioxidants to combat them. Free radical damage may contribute to many health issues ranging from cancer to aging skin, so hibiscus tea can be helpful.

In fact, hibiscus has been shown to contain ORAC values twice as high as matcha tea, which was previously thought to be the most potent tea source of antioxidants.

Give my Cold Lemon Hibiscus Tea a try. It’s great for the warmer months, when you’re craving something refreshing.

I steep this tea in a mason jar, store it in the fridge overnight then add fresh lemon to it in the morning. It’s awesome to sip on throughout the day!

How does a warm cup of anti-aging sound?

Matcha contains all of green tea’s benefits in the most concentrated form – amplifying the health benefits of this superfood.

Matcha is loaded with polyphenol compounds called catechins, a type of antioxidant, making it a powerful anti-aging tea.

In addition, studies have linked green tea to a variety of health benefits, like helping to prevent heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer, and even encouraging weight loss.
