I’m here celebrating the last few minutes of my birthday. It’s been a great one full of lots of love + some of my guiltiest pleasures.
I spent part of the day drinking tea & printing on some beautiful tan rives bfk paper I bought a while ago but never used.
You can find the prints in etsy my shop. I want to share the love, so I created a coupon code for you that will be good until midnight eastern time tomorrow (3/5) https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLotusRoot

I just wanted to take a moment to share one of my favorite drinks to help keep cool in the summertime – iced hibiscus tea. Growing up, I loved drinking Red Zinger tea, which has hibiscus in it ( I was that weird kid who stopped drinking pop when I was 12). Hibiscus is known as Jamaica or “Agua de flor de Jamaica”, among many other names throughout the world…It’s high in vitamin C, antioxidants and minerals, so it’s great for the skin and can give your immune system a boost.
Hibiscus tea is made of a part of the flower called the calyx (the part that supports the petals). Y ou can find it at many grocery stores – I got organic hibiscus at mountainroseherbs.com
There are different ways to make hibiscus tea – this is how I make mine:
It has many health benefits, (studies have shown it can lower blood pressure) but may also have some side effects, you can read about both here.
Do you ever drink hibiscus / jamaica, or do you have a favorite cold drink for the summertime? Let me know in the comments below!
