WHAT IT IS Though technically the word “tea” refers to drinks made from the leaves of Camelia Sinensis – the tea plant – in our culture, when we say “tea,” we mean any drink made by steeping this or any other plant leaves or flowers in hot water. This herbal infusion consists of 100% pure naturally sourced hibiscus flowers grown in China and naturally dried for maximum health benefits. It is caffeine-free and packed with vitamin C and other healthy bioactive compounds.
FLAVOR NOTES Naturally dried calyces of pure hibiscus flowers have a distinctly tart, citrusy taste. This bold, tropical infusion is perfect either hot or chilled, and is sometimes sweetened with honey to enhance the flavor.
BACKGROUND Experts believe that there are 8 original hibiscus species that can be considered as ancestors of the hibiscus hybrids found today. They are believed to be native to India, China, Hawaii, Fiji and Madagascar. They were introduced in Europe in the 18th Century – and some 100 years later in the United States. Hibiscus flowers remain on the tree just for a day after blooming and must be harvested very quickly. Today hibiscus tea is considered one of the most popular refreshing and healthy beverages in the world.
