About Me

My photo
My tremendously supportive husband & I have 3 wonderful children, 1 dog, 12 laying hens, 2 dairy goats, 3 bee hives, and a 2000 sq foot vegetable garden on a small 1/4 acre lot in the city. In the center of it all is our small 1,000 sq foot house purchased in 2008 as a foreclosure that we fully renovated to host our growing family, home school adventures, and small home business (CozyLeaf.com). We have a desire to learn a path to self sufficiency finding ways to be good stewards of the resources God has given us. We want to learn to live with less as we laydown roots to our little homestead.

Hibiscus Twist Loose Leaf Tea by Cozy Leaf (me!)

Pin It

New Blend HIBISCUS TWIST!!! This is one of those blends that I have worked on for a long time to get it just right!! Delicious, Heart healthy, and weight loss encouraging...what more can you ask for!?! Are you looking for an all around amazing tea, then this is the blend for you and your family! Simply delicious hot or cold! 

Hibiscus flowers are not only extremely delicious when brewed, but they are also extremely healthy for you!! Healthy and Delicious, yes please :) Regular consumption of hibiscus teas often lowers blood pressure as well as lowering cholesterol therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. Hibiscus is also the source of the hydroxycitric acid (HCA, or hydroxycut) used in many diet formulas. This compound has been long used to fight obesity. Scientific studies find that it stops the conversion of carbs in food to body fat. It fights appetite and encourages weight loss not by increasing energy expenditure but by encouraging the "wasting" of carbohydrates. HCA does not enhance weight loss during low-carb or Atkins-style diets, but it does help weight loss when used with a program of general calorie restriction reducing consumption of carbs, protein, and fats equally. This blend also packs a great amount of Vitamin C and has a very distinct vibrant red color when brewed!
