Hibiscus flowers have a mildly sweet and slightly tangy flavor and lend a beautiful crimson color to hot or cold beverages.
Tea made from the flowers is a popular beverage throughout the Caribbean and Mediterranean, and is often combined with rum or other spirits. In Egypt, it is traditional to toast the bride and groom with a drink made from hibiscus flowers at weddings.
*This tea will need a bit of sweetness if you are not used to the tart flavor.
ALLERGEN: Hibiscus may be intercropped with peanuts. Occasionally, fragments of peanut shells may be present.
All of our teas come loose leaf in a 2oz tin with 1 reusable tea bag.
Hibiscus Flower Tea
BEST BREW TEMPERATURE
BREW TIME & AMOUNT
1-3 minutes per 1-2 Tablespoons of tea, per 8 ounces water.
We aim to provide times and temperatures that reduce the risk of allowing the actual tea leaves (or other delicate herbs in blends) to taste bitter due to too much steep time or to get scorched from too much heat.
If you desire a stronger cup, we suggest using more tea rather than a longer steep time to minimize the potential for a more bitter flavor.
