Nourishing Hibiscus Coconut Milk Tea

August 29, 2019

Did you read how good hibiscus is for you? If not, you should definitely check out this blog post from Licensed Acupuncturist, Kiya Hunter. 

Kiya shares, "From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, the Hibiscus tea nourishes the Kidneys - which helps with the urinary + reproductive systems. It is categorized as “sour” - so it stimulates digestion. Hibiscus is also ‘cool’ in nature which relieves symptoms of heat and helps balance out heavy sweating."

We LOVE adding hibiscus to almost all of our yummy drink recipes. If you've been to one of our summer pop ups at the SAN Center, you've probably gotten to taste one of our delicious drinks with hibiscus!! Since many of you aren't local to Phoenix, I thought it would be fun to share one of the recipes that we shared at our Elixir Bar Pop-Ups during the month of August!
