Healthy herbs, rooibos, honeybush, decaf tea, and yerba mate.
During my vacation I bought a little herbal tea in Odessa. Каркаде is its name - never heard of. But with searching I found out that it is Hibiscus or Karkadeh or Roselle or ... it really has a bunch of names.
In our region I found out it is added to a lot of herbal teas. In other regions of the world it is drunk quite frequently - hot or cold.
I really really like its fresh taste due to organic acids. And its deep red colour is nice.
And it seems that it is very very healthy.
Anybody here who drinks hibiscus tea?

I love to put hibiscus in herbal tea blends, but never drink it solo, because it is so sour.
