From Zen Tara Tea

Organic Hibiscus has a slightly tart and fruity flavor with notes of citrus and pomegranate. It brews into a deep scarlet infusion and is delicious hot or iced. The blossoms are hand-picked from the Hibiscus Sabdariffa varietal when the flowers of this shrub become full, after harvesting the petals are then sun dried. Hibiscus is known to have a high vitamin C content and other beneficial health properties. Other than tea, the hibiscus flowers can also used to create an interesting range of great tasting drinks. In Jamaica, for example, an iced drink using hibiscus is very popular. Try adding a bit of honey or organic cane sugar to your hibiscus infusion to balance the tartness and bring out the fruity sweet potential.

How to Prepare Hibiscus:
Heat water (filtered, if possible) to a low boil, add one generous teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup (apprx. 8 ounces). Infuse the tea for 4–5 minutes depending on taste preference

Sipdown! 87/395 – I got a couple of samples with my Bluebird order that’s bumped my total up a bit.

This was a tea I received in my first ever swap from Hapatite and it’s taken me a while to get through because it isn’t often I’m in the mood for hibiscus. When I am, though, I actually quite enjoy it! It’s tart and fruity, and I really do get notes of pomegranate. I used to add something crazy like four sugars to this back when I first got it but now I only add one to stop the tartness from being too much. It’s definitely best hot, because it gets more tart as it cools, and I find that I have to add extra sugar if I let it cool too much. I wouldn’t say there’s anything special about this particular brand, but I would definitely think about repurchasing a straight hibiscus tea from someone at some point in the future.
