Hibiscus is a striking red flower that can transform a cup of water into a tart & tangy, crimson-colored drink, reminiscent of cranberry and lemon, and packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants. Commonly served hot in an herbal tea, Hibiscus (also known as Roselle) has been studied for its potential to lower blood pressure, as well as improve circulation and aid in digestion.
Hibiscus is also enjoyed cold along with some sweetener, especially in my home country of Malaysia where hibiscus is the national flower. Keep the drink simple, like red lemonade, or spike it with rum for a summery cocktail. The color & flavor of hibiscus make it a fun ingredient to experiment with in drinks and desserts.
To make one cup of Hibiscus Herbal Tea, just steep one teaspoon of hibiscus flowers* in a cup of 170-180F water for 2-3 minutes. Finally, stir in sugar or honey (optional).
*Our hibiscus flowers are pre-crushed to allow for use in a small tea ball infuser.
