I regularly sip on this Hibiscus Moon Tea Infusion when I’m in need of something delicious and caffeine free. I’ll sip this herbal remedy regularly, but love to especially enjoy it before my cycle begins as its ingredients are great for supporting hormonal health. It has an earthy flavour, but is mild and lightly fruity thanks to beautiful hibiscus petals. You can enjoy it iced, or hot, and prepare it in batches for convenience as well.
This Hibiscus Moon Tea is made with only 4 simple ingredients and is vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free.
What’s in this Hibiscus Moon Tea?
Red raspberry leaf → Herbalists believe that red raspberry leaf tea is a uterine tonic. It’s commonly enjoyed by pregnant women and may help to reduce menstrual cramping.
Nettle → Another well known herb that supports overall hormone health and fertility. It is also micronutrient rich in things like manganese, iron, zinc and more.
Oatstraw → Contains diuretic properties which is helpful for reducing inflammation, and magnesium which can help to relax the muscles, and menstrual cramping.
Dried hibiscus petals → Mostly for flavour, and adds a fruity, berry-like taste. In addition, it is enjoyed by many to help promote healthy blood pressure levels.
Secrets to success
I would recommend batch preparing this infusion if you intend to drink it regularly. It’s helpful just to keep the ratio in mind, but measurements do not have to be exact–it’s a forgiving recipe!
