Hibiscus: Beautiful, Delicious, and Healthy

The flowers of hibiscus plants come in many colors are a real treat for the eye. Hibiscus tea is usually brewed from the calyces and/or petals of Hibiscus sabdariffa, also known as roselle. It is a popular drink in many different countries all over the world and is also commonly prepared as iced tea.

The tea brewed from hibiscus has a nice deep red color and a tart and floral taste. Sometimes I like to drink hibiscus tea as it is, but there are also many recipes to make it even tastier. Iced hibiscus tea with some lime and honey is truly a delicious and refreshing drink during a hot summer day. You can read more about hibiscus tea recipes in this article.

Hibiscus tea is known as a healthy beverage, that has been traditionally used as a treatment for high blood pressure. It has a high antioxidant content that can help with reducing oxidative stress that causes aging.

Furthermore, the polyphenols found in hibiscus have demonstrated potential in cancer prevention.

Hibiscus Tea Bags

Tea bags provide an easy and convenient way of brewing a nice cup of hibiscus tea wherever you are. You only need hot water and a cup, and you’re ready to go. It is best to choose a product with unbleached tea bags to avoid any chemicals getting into your tea.

There are dozens of brands that have hibiscus tea bags in their selection of products. Below is the best one that I have tried.

Buddha Teas Organic Hibiscus Tea

This a very high-quality organic hibiscus tea that comes in a pack of 18 unbleached teabags. The only ingredient of this product is hibiscus, there are no additives. This hibiscus tea has a natural and smooth flavor!

Loose Leaf Hibiscus Tea

When you buy loose leaf hibiscus tea, you can buy it in bulk and you can also easily brew tea for a larger group of people with a kettle or a french press. You can also make your own herbal tea blend by blending the dried hibiscus flowers with other herbs.

I have come across a disturbing fact that, when buying loose leaf hibiscus tea, people sometimes find animal feces mixed with their product. This can be very disgusting and unhygienic. The companies that are making hibiscus tea should have strict quality control to detect if there is anything that doesn’t belong within the product.

Next, I will introduce the brand of loose leaf hibiscus, which offers a product that goes through strict quality control, and in my opinion, has the best and most consistent quality.

U.S. Wellness Naturals Organic Hibiscus Flowers Tea

U.S. Wellness Naturals’ hibiscus tea consists of 100% whole hibiscus flower petals sourced directly from Egypt. The flowers are grown in Faiyum Oasis where Egyptians have used and grown hibiscus for centuries.

You can also use these organic hibiscus flowers for cooking or in salads and jams. This product is of very high quality and has a certificate of origin, an Organic Certificate, FDA Registration, and it is also ISO 9001:2008 certified. This is the best loose leaf hibiscus tea that you can find!

Hibiscus Tea Blends

There are many interesting products where hibiscus has been blended with other ingredients. Here are the tastiest and healthiest blends available.

Tea Forte Wildberry Hibiscus Tea

Tea Forte Wildberry Hibiscus Tea is an excellent blend that consists of organic ingredients including hibiscus, apple pieces, licorice root, blackberry leaves, orange peel, raspberries, and rosehip. It has nice and complex flavor with floral and fruity notes and tastes great hot and cold. If you are looking for an exquisite and delicious organic loose leaf hibiscus blend, try this one!

The Republic of Tea Natural Hibiscus Superflower Tea

The Republic of Tea Natural Hibiscus Superflower Tea comes in a nice airtight tin that contains 36 unbleached and stringless tea bags. The ingredients of this blend are hibiscus flower, sweet blackberry leaves, and stevia leaves. This is a very nice blend with a sweet floral taste.

This blend is a mix of organic hibiscus flower petals and dried ginger. These two ingredients are some of the healthiest you can find. The sweet floral taste of hibiscus and spicy ginger flavor creates a nice combination.

  2. Your article really makes me wish I liked tea! I’ve just never cared for the tea taste. I’ve tried all kinds, but I don’t even like the smell. Still, I really wish I could drink hibiscus tea. You made it sound so dreamy! I’ll have to see if my tea-drinking son would like to try any. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • I am sure the hibiscus in Nigeria is very good. They also have very high-quality hibiscus in Egypt, and that’s where for example the U.S. Wellness Naturals hibiscus comes from.
