My Doctor has decreased my micardis to 40 mg from 160. I have been drinking hibiscus tea in the morning and that dropped my bp to 126/76 or thereabout. Doctor put me back on micardis but only 4 mg as he said he also wants me to take it for my kidney as there are other ingredients that will help my kidney (proteinuria). He couldn't believe hibiscus could lower bp that much. (I was having trouble keeping it down to 130/80.) So far it is staying down very well. I don't know if it will work for everyone, but it did for me.
