Hibiscus tea has been the preferred drink of many cultures, dating as far back as ancient Egypt. Pharaohs would refresh themselves from the Nile Valley heat by enjoying a sour-sweet cupful. Our delicious Hibiscus Black pairs this tangy flower with bright and brisk Ceylon tea. Layered, fruity-spicy aroma and flavor. Rich, tangy and punchy, great hot or iced!

Ingredients & Lore
blended with black tea, hibiscus & natural hibiscus flavor
The state flower of Hawaii, the hibiscus (referred to by natives as 'Pua Aloalo') is presented on leis to dignitaries who come to Hawaii as a symbol of old royalty. An herbal beverage made from this large, flavorful flower is consumed hot and cold in many parts of the world. It's known as Bissap in West Africa, Karkadé in Egypt and Sudan, flor de Jamaica in Mexico, Gongura in India and Brazil. Some refer to it as 'roselle', a common name for the hibiscus flower. Dried hibiscus is edible, too (although prepare yourself for a powerful, punchy tang!), and a special treat in Mexico.
