Hibiscus Coffee can be called as a herbal coffee with ingredients of the flower, Dhania & Dry ginger each a having better medicinal values. This recipe I can say is purely of my own creation wherein I started to search for the best ingredients which reduces bile ( what you call as “Pitta” in Siddha and “Pitham” in Tamil). Though Coffee and Tea would be an energy refresher but when consumed often with milk would cause bile. This coffee powder can be a good replacement those who often takes more of Tea or Coffee in a day. 

 
 
 

 

Medicinal Value / Health Benefit:
Certain herbs have the ability to soothe the liver and gall bladder by reducing inflammation, detoxing, dilating the biliary ducts. Hibiscus is a well known traditional medicine and acts as potent antioxidants for its ability to lower blood pressure. Also dhania/coriander added in the coffee mix gives a better solution for many digestive related problems. Dry ginger powder added here is used to cure the stomach irritation, aids in digestion, cures from cold and when added with jaggery relieves from running nose.
 
Be cautious while taking herbal tea, when you are pregnant.
