Hibiscus teas (often referred to as ‘Egyptian red’ or ‘karkade’) are organic herbal teas native to Egypt and made from the tangy outer petals 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.
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?
Hibiscus teas possess innumerable health benefits, being enriched with Vitamin C and high levels of antioxidants (which gives hibiscus teas their distinctive magenta colour). This punchy caffeine-free brew has been used since Ancient Egyptian times as a remedy for sore throats, gum disease, bladder problems, and is also thought to be an effective blood pressure regulator.
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 teasThe 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.
