About Hibiscus:

These organic, caffeine-free red hibiscus flower petals from China steep into a beautiful deep red brew.

Hibiscus is native to Asia and the Pacific Islands, and there are thousands of subvarieties with different colors. Some have blossoms just two inches in diameter, while others are ten to twelve inches. Hibiscus can take the form of bushes that will only grow one foot in several years, while others may grow to 15 feet if left undisturbed in the ground.

Hibiscus makes a delicious iced tea in the hot summer months, either by itself or blended with other herbs; check out our guide to cold brewing here.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Hibiscus Flower Petals.

Flavor Profile:

Deep red, sweet-tart brew, with a silky mouthfeel.
