Good teas with hibiscus?
I’ve been looking into hibiscus, because it has been shown to be effective in reducing blood pressure. I kinda like Honest Tea’s Black Forest Berry tea – it’s pretty refreshing when served cold – but it’s a bit expensive to buy for frequent consumption.
Does anyone here have any favorite non-bottled teas that contain hibiscus?
The republic of tea
Pineapple Lychee Hibiscus
I second that recommendation. Yum! The Key Lime Hibiscus is good too if you love lime flavor, but you have to LOVE lime as it is pretty potent. The Pineapple Lychee is more sweet and pineapple-y.
Art of Tea has an awesome blend, great iced as well:
Hey! Try Hibiscus out with some ginger and sugar! Ice well! And if you are looking to infuse it with alcohol, it works great with rum!
One that I inititally hated and now LOVE especially iced is wei cha cha from Samovar- it is a blend of hibiscus and some spicy flavors…love it.
We serve White Lion Cranberry Hibiscus at the spa I work at and the guests can’t stop raving about it. I also recently bought Zen Tara Tea’s Organic Hibiscus Botanical Tea at their shop recently. I’m gifting it to a friend so unfortunately can’t review it. http://www.zentaratea.com/hibiscus.html
check out my researched article on Hibiscus tea.
Suggest me if i missed any thing.
Thanks in advance.
Silver needle or White peony and hibiscus is always a winner. Hibiscus is really inexpensive, and you can get white peony from any respectable tea store. Just do about 2/3 white tea and 1/3 hibiscus and brew for about 1 1/2 minutes… delicious!
Wouldn’t flowers take longer to brew than tea? How about steeping the hibiscus for a couple of minutes before adding the tea?
It would other than the fact that hibiscus is mega mega strong, and white tea is soft and gentle.
