Refreshing Egyptian Red Tea

The most unusual drink comes from Egypt and it is known as Karkade. It is a kind of tea made from the dried, dark red petals of the Hibiscus flower. This tea is served in all Egyptian cafes and the very best Karkade comes from Upper Egypt. I really enjoy this tea and it can be drunk hot or cold. I prefer it cold and without honey or sugar even if it has a kind of tart taste. The really good news is that Egyptian red tea is very healthy, caffeine-free and has many therapeutic benefits. The plant from which the leaves for the tea are gathered is considered to be medicinal and is used as a remedy for different kinds of diseases and health conditions.

Egyptian Karkade has a high content of antioxidants and the natural flavonoids can actually slow down the aging process, help protect against cancer and improve your overall health. The tea has many enzymes which help to break down complex sugars and help in absorbing carbohydrates. It is a very rich source of vitamin C and can strengthen and support your immune system. Drinking it regularly can also relieve constipation and help in case of bladder infection. Drink it for the benefit of your cardiovascular system as it will help keep your heart functioning just right, strengthen the blood vessels, lower your blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels in your blood. Try it and see what your doctor has to say at your next appointment. You just might be surprised at the results.
