HIBISCUS TEA — ORGANIC HERBAL TISANE
Organic hibiscus tea is a deliciously sweet herbal tisane comprised of the deep red, petal-like calyx of the hibiscus flower. The flavours in this scarlet brew bloom no matter if you drink it hot or iced. Due to its bold and tangy tasting notes, hibiscus is a staple brew during summertime. In fact, all of The Tea Centre’s fruit tisanes sports hibiscus as its base ingredient.
Known the world over by many names—Egyptian red, karkady, rosella—hibiscus is a feast for the senses and revitalises the soul with each sip. Caffeine-sensitive sippers will also enjoy that our hibiscus loose leaf is organic and naturally caffeine-free. Moreover, one clinical review from 2014 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.
You’re bound to find some variation of this bright red tea no matter where you travel in the world. From Senegal’s bissap (hibiscus blend containing mint) to Thailand’s nam kra-jeab (iced hibiscus sweetened and served in plastic bags), hibiscus is truly the cosmopolitan of teas.
