Hibiscus sabdariffa is a member of the mallow family known for its vibrant red flowers. Large, showy hibiscus flowers thrive in tropical habitats and are commonly made into hibiscus tea. The cooling, refreshing brew can be quite tart. When enjoyed hot or iced, its common to add a natural sweetener to dull the tartness. Our organically cultivated hibiscus flower is ideal for blending into herbal infusions, crafting herbal syrups, and dying fabric.
Hibiscus flowers are the main ingredient in many wonderfully refreshing teas made around the world, especially in Mexico, Latin America, and North Africa. A tea known as Agua de Jamaica, or simply Jamaica in Mexico, is usually served chilled with copious amounts of sugar to sweeten the natural tartness of the hibiscus.
Hibiscus flowers are often intercropped with peanuts. Occasionally fragments of peanut shells are present. Caution for individuals with severe peanut allergies. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
