Hibiscus tea is an herbal tea made from the dried petals of the hibiscus plant (hibiscus sabdariffa) and is also sometimes known as roselle. It has a pleasantly tart, sweet flavor reminiscent of cranberry, and brews up a vibrant magenta color. Hibiscus is also used to add color and flavor to many other varieties of herbal tea. This tea is enjoyed worldwide, and is often sweetened and spiced depending on regional culture and cuisine. While hibiscus tea can be served hot, it also makes a delicious iced tea!
Hibiscus is extremely high in vitamin C and full of antioxidants. Studies have shown that hibiscus may have a variety of other benefits as well, including lowering blood pressure and helping to maintain a healthy weight. Hibiscus is naturally caffeine-free, making it a great alternative for those trying to steer clear of caffeinated drinks.
