Hibiscus organic is a deliciously sweet herbal tisane comprised of the deep red petals of the hibiscus flower. This scarlet brew can be served hot or iced and is best enjoyed as an after-dinner treat thanks to its bold and tangy tasting notes! One can even enjoy hibiscus chilled with accents of citrus fruit or pomegranate during the summer. We have the perfect iced tea recipe here.
Known the world over by many names—Egyptian red, karkady, rosella—hibiscus tea is a feast for the senses and a vitality booster for the body. Hibiscus tea originates in Africa where it was used to prevent heart disease, regulate body temperature, and remedy sore throats. Doctors are even studying how hibiscus tea could aid in treating high cholesterol and irregular blood pressure. The tisane’s anti-inflammatory properties, high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants also all contribute to making hibiscus tea the perfect sip.
You’re bound to find variations of hibiscus tea no matter where you travel to in the world. From Senegal, where bissap (hibiscus tea flavoured with mint) is the national drink, to Thailand, where nam kra-jeab (iced hibiscus tea heavily sweetened and served in plastic bags) is served outside every school and local market, hibiscus is the cosmopolitan of teas.
