Say hello to my new obsession.
Cranberry, raspberry and echinacea tea. It's absolutely delicious. The taste is not dissimilar to hot Ribena. Only less sugary. I've been looking up benefits of echinacea flowers and their uses but the facts don't seem very consistent. The flowers are naturally found in America and after a bit of research I've read that various native American tribes use them in medicine, for various reasons but mostly for headaches, colds, flu symptoms. They all seem to circle around the idea that it boosts your immune system, but again I can't find any sturdy science facts. Well, flower tea it is then.
Oh and a box of 20 tea bags from Sainsbury's only costs 75p.
