Get a double dose of antioxidants with two powerhouse teas, each with their own unique flavors for a drink that keeps tastebuds happy!
A Synergy of Two Teas
This iced beverage is a delicious blend of fruity and grassy notes that complement one another. Hibiscus tea is full of tart, fruity flavor that tastes similar to cranberry or pomegranate. This vibrant tea is made from dried hibiscus flowers and is rich in antioxidants.
Hibiscus tea is known as the beauty elixir and for good reason. Rich in vitamin-C, this tea helps to promote healthy skin by combating oxidative damage from things like the sun and pollution, both of which can make skin appear dull. Vitamin-C rich foods help to restore elasticity by slowing collagen breakdown.
If that’s not enough, pairing hibiscus with a chlorophyll-rich tea like matcha doubles the antioxidants that help fight off disease, protect the liver and even support healthy brain function.
If you’re looking for a drink that will keep you alert and focused without the jitters of coffee, reach for a cup of matcha instead. L-theanine in matcha provides a sustained energy without the crash.
Note: Although the hibiscus tea is caffeine free, matcha contains some caffeine and is best enjoyed in the morning or afternoon.
To add balance to the tart-earthy flavor of the drink, hibiscus tea is mixed with unsweetened coconut milk and matcha gets a touch of honey for sweetness. When stirred together they create a perfect yin and yang of flavor.
