Organic Hibiscus Tea - Loose Leaf

Our Organic hibiscus loose-leaf tea is Soil association-certified organic and made from the finest hibiscus flowers available..


Our tea is made by drying the vibrantly coloured calyces of the hibiscus flower, which are kept whole as much as possible, but can break into smaller pieces easily. The flowers come from the hibiscus plant, also known as the Hibiscus Sabdariffa, or Roselle in Thailand and parts Australasia.

The hibiscus flower itself is yellow with a red centre, and it is the flowers, the fruit and the calyx that are used for healing Ayurveda purposes.

Hibiscus tea has for centuries been a pillar of Ayurvedic medicine; it’s primarily used in Ayurveda to promote normal digestion, something which in turn leads to overall wellbeing for body and mind.

Our hibiscus tea is a very fragrant and tart beverage that when steeped provides deep, rich purple tea brimming with vitamin C which can be enjoyed hot or cold. It has a great taste, but can be sour, a bit like cranberry juice, so if you like the sweeter things in life, steep it with a small amount of stevia if required.

Many use hibiscus tea to help speed up the body’s metabolism to help support them in a healthy and gradual weight loss program.

Because hibiscus tea is rich in Vitamin C, it is also a great help against the common cold, flu and other infectious seasonal illnesses.

By drinking hibiscus tea when you feel run down or notice the symptoms of a cold coming on you may be able to get over a cold, flu or illness much quicker.

People in China and Egypt have been using hibiscus tea for centuries as a way of reducing the effects of ageing, as it contains numerous antioxidants that eliminate the free radicals that are in your body.

Some of our customers drink our hibiscus tea because they find that just an 8oz serving helps significantly improve their mood; this is because the vitamins and minerals in our hibiscus tea offer a calming effect on the nervous system.

To make a delicious hot cup of hibiscus tea, add the cut and sifted hibiscus flowers to a pot of freshly boiled water and leave to steep for 3-6 minutes to reach your desired taste and strength.

Looking for something different?/h3>

Try adding a stick of cinnamon, honey, stevia leaf, mint leaves or even a wedge of lime during steeping to change the flavour dramatically.

Try leaving your freshly brewed hibiscus tea to cool, then refrigerate and drink at a later date poured over ice cubes for an enjoyable, refreshing iced tea with all the same health benefits.

Hibiscus makes fascinating party cocktails

You can use brewed and cooled hibiscus tea as a sangria base and then add the alcohol along with pieces of chopped fruit and berries for sangria with a healthy punch. Alternatively, if you are trying to reduce your alcohol intake, why not swap that glass of red wine with a glass of cooled hibiscus tea when relaxing in the evening?
