Blood Pressure Tea

This one of #GranniesTonics I just had to share with you! You need to know that Grannie’s been working, and by that I mean, steadily researching, learning, testing, finding natural remedies to help lower her blood pressure and, ultimately, to come off her blood pressure medication, all together.

It’s Sunday! Y’all know me; I’m resting with my feet up and here’s Grannie working hard in the kitchen - Vitamix on full blast! But, on this particular day, I couldn’t help but pick up the camera, when I saw on the counter, all of the herbs she’d gathered! So, I asked, Grannie, what are you making with all of that? When she began describing her, Hisbiscus & Ginger (Blood Pressure Lowering) Tea, I just knew that I had to record it. I’m thinking future generations!

Grannie’s not into the camera; though, I insisted that she pose with at least one of the shots I took; she even wanted to take off her glasses. I insisted, “No! I want people to see you as you are everyday, in your discipline and what it takes to Right your own natural prescriptions for good health!

Grannie’s Hibiscus & Ginger Tea

Blood Pressure Lowering Herbal Blend

See the list of herbs below Grannie has researched and gathered over the years to make what she calls her, Hibiscus & Ginger Blood Pressure Lowering Tea. To me, it’s quite involved, but for Grannie, it’s saving our lives; though, for you, Grannie suggests that you may choose to use all or a combination of the following ingredients or just select your preferences and omit any that you have issues with (allergy, intolerance, etc.). While Grannie personally likes a strong concentration of tea, sweetened with lots of honey, she urges you to experiment with your preferences on the strength of the tea. Personally, I like mine light and very little honey! You may prefer yours with or without sweetness! No matter, just get the good stuff in you on a daily basis!


Gather your herbs, spices, fruits, etc., measure 1 cup (tea leaves) to 1/4 cup (herbs & spices) of each ingredient (depending on your preference), bring to a boil, then simmer on low for 30 to 60 minutes. After simmer, turn off the burner and let steep for several hours and/or overnight, strain and sweeten to taste with raw honey. Yields 1 gallon; store in the refrigerator (Grannie goes through a gallon in one week).

Grannie drinks 1 cup 3 times a day to help keep her blood pressure under control!
