Hibiscus Loose Tea, from the Nile River Valley, is a scarlet red infusion from the sepals of the hibiscus plant used as a cooling and refreshing drink since ancient times.
Related to the ornamental variety we know so well, hibiscus sabdariffa is native to Africa and symbolizes grace and beauty.
This hibiscus is field-grown and sun-dried. Rich in Vitamin A and C, contains Anthocyanin and beta-carotene antioxidants. Replaces electrolytes and quenches thirst after vigorous exercise. Eases symptoms of cold, flu and coughs.
Hibiscus can be brewed with ginger, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg for a holiday drink. We advise not to use milk.
Prepared like tea, these gems contain no tea leaves. All blends are caffeine-free, except for the Mate. Use boiling water, (Mate should use water at 176) infusions can be steeped up to 10 minutes depending on personal preferences. All teas are sold in 2oz packets from which 20-25 cups of tea can be brewed, unless otherwise noted.
