I love herbal teas! They are refreshing and has lesser calories when compared to the milk teas. There are several sorts of herbal teas and each one addresses a health concern. Most of us drink some sort of beverage everyday. Some find difficult waking up without a cup of tea or coffee while there are people who love to make their own cup of green tea to kick start the day with good health sans calories. I belong to the second category of people in the world. The moment I wake up, I put on some green tea leaves to a cup of hot water and allow it to steep while I finish off my morning business. Recently, in Bali, I was introduced to hibiscus tea along with various other flavors. I loved the aroma and the sour taste it had. While browsing through online shops, I bumped into this tea from 18 Herbs Organics. Without I second thought, I ordered a couple of packs for myself.
