I am recently returned from our annual Bali Foodie Fest and one of the drinks that we manage to have every year is a fruity spiced tea...this is not that recipe, but it is a close copy...I think! You can make just the syrup and use it in any tea of choice...I used Rosella tea as we had given that to our foodies as part of their goodie bag...so who is coming with me next year?
In the meantime, enjoy this little taste of our trip, hot or cold.
FYI rosellas or hibiscus flowers are very high in vitamin C and great for reducing high blood pressure as well as having a mild laxative effect...just so you know!
BENEFITS: The health benefits of Wild orange oil can be attributed to its properties as an anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, antispasmodic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, diuretic, tonic, and it also has sedative affects. Of course it also tastes absolutely delicious.
Cinnamon bark oil also has many many health benefits, the obvious one being that it helps control sugar cravings, promotes weight loss and is also fantastic for killing mosquitos when diffused through out your home! It also is helpful for cold symptoms like sore throats and congestion.
