We love this complex blend of hibiscus, blackberry leaf and lemongrass and its tart, tangy, mildly fruity and lemony taste.
A tropical flower that thrives in hot climates, hibiscus can be found in the food, drink and lore of many tropical cultures. As a tea it’s often enjoyed with a little sweetener added, sometimes with lime or lemon, and served iced or hot.
Some of our favorite hibiscus is organically cultivated on farms in the fertile Nile Valleys of Egypt. Our purchase of organic and Fair Trade Certified hibiscus ensures that farmers receive a fair trade premium for community development, have fair labor standards, and that it is grown in an environmentally sustainable way. Thus every flower picked contributes to the enhanced livelihood of these farmers.
