Hibiscus teas (often referred to as ‘Egyptian red’ or ‘karkade’) are organic herbal teas made from the tangy outer leaves (i.e. the calyx) of the hibiscus flower. All hibiscus teas share common characteristics such as a vibrant red liquor when brewed and a tart, astringent flavour. Naturally caffeine-free, hibiscus tea can be enjoyed at any time and are a wonderful addition to your daily tea ritual. While hibiscus is cultivated all over the world, the hibiscus in our blends herald from Egypt.
Making a mug of hibiscus tea for others is also a great gesture of hospitality and a wonderful way to welcome someone into your home! Spend time together with those you love with a mug of hibiscus tea in hand and make them feel welcome.
What are the health benefits of hibiscus tea?
Like most herbal tisanes, hibiscus is naturally caffeine-free. Moreover, one clinical review points to hibiscus’ historical usage as traditional medicine. It also suggests that hibiscus has antibacterial and antioxidant effects with a wide range of potential health food uses (Da-Costa-Rocha, 2014). While the health benefits of hibiscus sabdariffa remain clinically understudied, we look forward to more research cropping up on herbal teas in the future.
Consider pouring yourself a cup of hibiscus tea the next time you want to relax and unwind. Its soothing aromas and elegant flavours make hibiscus teas the perfect accompaniment to any self-care ritual. Even during summer, you can whip up a batch of iced hibiscus tea with fresh fruit to cool down with style.
How to brew hibiscus teas
The duration and water temperature that you brew a hibiscus tea at is dependent on whether the blend contains a black or green tea base, or is a purely herbal tisane! For more information, see our brewing guide here. As a general rule of thumb though, all hibiscus teas taste perfect hot or iced, and on their own or with a dash of honey.
