Hibiscus rosa-sinensis

Deep rich red color infuses into a beverage with the addition of hibiscus flowers. Almost cranberry in flavor, it's rich in vitamin C but more importantly it's got the "zing" people look for in lots of herbal blends. Common to pre-packaged blends, we prefer to use this as a base or addition to your custom tea requests. In South America, the flower is steeped alone, iced, and sweetened for a bright refreshing beverage.  We love it in our Hibiscus Margarita!

Brew for 4-6 min. at 210°F; 1 steeping.
