Organic Hibiscus is wonderfully tart and fruity with notes of citrus and pomegranate. Hibiscus has a deep scarlet infusion and is delicious hot or iced. Hibiscus is hand-picked from the Hibiscus Sabdariffa varietal when the flowers of this shrubby plant become plump and juicy red, and is then sun dried. Hibiscus is used in teas, wines and tonics throughout the world and cultivated in Southeastern Asia, Mexico, the Caribbean, China and many African nations. It is also the base for the Mexican soft drink known as “Jamaica” and is the key ingredient of holiday version of Jamaica known as “Sorrel,” which is consumed across the Caribbean with a splash of rum and a hint of nutmeg. Hibiscus is known to have a high vitamin C content and other beneficial health properties. Try adding a bit of honey or sugar to your hibiscus infusion to balance the tartness and bring out the fruity sweet potential.
