    I started drinking Hibiscus tea. A large glass each day. Supposed to be good for bpressure. Well, I THINK I have been very ill from it. It seems impossible. I have Googled, no side effects like that. I have been very nauseated for days. SO weird. I get nausea like most POTS people but not like this for this long.

    Has anyone had a problem with it?

    nope, but it could have some thing you are sensitve to, for exaple salicylates or phenols or so (Do you react to mint too??). I tolerate green tea, and fennel tea, nettle leaf tea is supposed to be very good for you too, but I react to that also.

    Yes, it could be something else in it. I can drink other teas. I do not react to mint. I love it.

    I won't this tea anymore. I love C. Seasonings Sleepytime. I seem to be fine with other teas. I have kidney stones so I don't drink reg. tea. I miss it.
