Product Description

Hibiscus, also known as rosemallow, is a flowering plant belonging to the same family as cocoa and cotton.

These dried hibiscus flowers make a lovely refreshing tea that is a traditional drink in many countries around the world. In Mexico the tea is known as Agua de Jamaica - served cold with lots of sugar the perfect refreshing accompaniment to the spicy cuisine.

They are often combined with other herbs or fruit juices and they impart a cheery red colour and tart flavour.

I drink hibiscus tea all the time. Its flavour is a fruity tangy taste, and it is chock full of healthy reasons to drink it. Supposed to lower blood pressure, good for kidneys, full of vit C etc. etc.

This is about the cheapest way to buy the stuff, and is the same whole dried calyces that I learned to love years ago in Honduras. I break them down into smaller pieces with a blender to make them a more usable quickly infusing tea. Buying the ready processed product costs orders of magnitude more. If you only want an occasional cup then the other forms may be OK, but if you drink a lot, then this is the type to buy.

2 x cups Hibiscus flowers 4 x cups water 3/4 cup sugar. Boil in a saucepan for 15 mins, let it cool to room temp add a further 4 x cups water. Either pop in fridge or drink warm.Tastes great. I did use a muslin cloth to strain it tho as its a bit sandy as it is grows in gritty soil. Great for bringing down blood pressure. I am not a Dr so read up for yourself

By Lost John TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Jun. 2014
I first came across Hibiscus flowers as 'Egyptian Red Tea', or Karkadee, and for some years bought them from an oriental supermarket near Baker Street. The product came from Sudan and often had poultry feathers and more in it. I hoped to goodness it had been irradiated - as oriental spices and some soft fruit are - horrific as that may sound. Then, as a stand-alone item rather than as a (very common) ingredient of mixed herbal teas, it disappeared.

I was delighted when it came back (from Nigeria now and, so far in my experience, free of impurities) and have now bought and consumed a total of several kilograms from BuyWholeFoodsOnline - moving on to buy bulk supplies of nuts and seeds from them too.

As the 'blurb' suggests, hibiscus tea can be drunk (hot, warm or cold) on its own, with or without sweetening. Taking the lead from herbal blend tea bags, it can also be mixed with other herbs, also with berries, including home-grown. My favourite summer beverage at the moment is made from a mix of hibiscus flowers, mint, wild strawberry leaves and actual wild strawberries cut in half. The mint and the 'wild' strawberries are harvested fresh from my garden as the kettle boils. Oh yes, and a little honey. Mmmm - must go and make myself another cup.

This bag goes a very long way. We haven't finished it yet. Use about 5 petals for a mug of tea and 3 to 4 for a cup of tea. Add a bit of sugar or honey if you like it sweet or as is. It's a bit like cranberry juice. It's also good as a hair rinse. However, it can give you highlights. As a hair rinse use about 10 petals and make a tea. You can store the rest in the freezer for another day.
I also gave it to our teens as a drink. It's nice served hot or as a cold drink. It is best sweetened as a cold drink. It makes a refreshing drink on a hot day.
It is said to increase blood flow so I would avoid it if you're pregnant or trying for a baby.

A pleasant and refreshing sour tea. I think drinking this regularly has helped lower my blood pressure. If you search Google Scholar for hibiscus tea you can find scientific studies that appear to confirm this effect.

Looking through my Amazon orders I see that over the last few years I have bought 500g or 1kg bags of hibiscus five times. What better recommendation?

I use this with a Bodum Assam Tea Press - Stainless Steel.

This was suggested to my by a French colleague at work. He said they use it in France to keep the 'grease off' i.e. stops you gaining too much body fat. I thought we would try it. It makes an interesting string tea and is quite a shock to the taste buds the first time, but you very soon get used to it. It also reduces your cravings for sugary things. For both of us it causes the kidneys to work more than usual and expel water. So it is a diuretic. Seems to work.
