Beauty of the Island

So anyone that knows me knows how much I love 2 things- Coquis and Hibiscus flowers.

About 2 weeks ago I went to see Julie & Julia and was given a free goody bag. In it there was a hibiscus soda. It was Great!!!!! I dont have the name brand at the moment but I will find it and post a pic of the soda for you to try it. Since then I’m looking into other exotic flavors that are associated with Puerto Rico. The Hibiscus is the official flower of Puerto Rico and comes in many varieties. Most common is the red one. Tea is also available rather readily as well. In looking up the benefits of hibiscus I found that it offers a large amount of vitamin C, lowers cholesterol and high blood pressure.

So not ony is this the most beautiful flower in existence but it tastes good and is good for your health.

*disclaimer, im not a dr. so just drink it cus it tastes good* 🙂
