You likely recognize Hibiscus Tea by its astonishingly deep magenta colour. You probably also have some idea that the tart flavour of this tea indicates it’s loaded with vitamin C and bioflavonoids. What you may not be aware of, though, is that this royal-toned tea also imparts a plethora of other benefits, as well as providing the makings for a superb iced tea.
Native to warm, tropical, and subtropical climates, the genus of flowering plants considered hibiscus includes hundreds of varieties in the mallow family. With their large, vibrantly coloured petals, hibiscus flowers have become an iconic symbol for a tropical paradise. Hibiscus plants vary in size from little shrubs to small trees. Likewise, their flowers have their own individuality, and come in a broad range of colours and sizes, with red being one of the most popular. Hibiscus blossoms are the national flower of South Korea, Malaysia and Haiti. They also have spiritual significance, and play an important part in Hindu ceremonies. Though many may find it surprising, in many parts of the world these beautiful flowers are edible, and are served dried, or coated in sugar.
Health Benefits of Hibiscus Tea:
Colourful anthocyanins, the most recognizable member of the bioflavonoid phytochemicals, give Hibiscus Tea its vibrant colour. Anthocyanin pigments are famous for their free radical-scavenging capabilities, which support the claim that drinking Hibiscus Tea on a regular basis offers the consumer protection against a host of potential conditions.
What Does Hibiscus Tea Taste Like?
The first thing you’ll notice about Buddha Teas Hibiscus Tea is its intense colour, reminding one of garnets, or perhaps a glass of Côte-du-Rhône wine.

How to Make Hibiscus Tea:
A good boil is recommended, and depending on how intense you like your hibiscus either 1-3 minutes for a mild flavour, or about 4-5 minutes if your taste buds crave a bit of tart. You’ll be encouraged to include your favourite sweetener, if sweet’s your thing. Or try experimenting with other flavours; we love adding our spicy and ever-versatile Ginger Root Tea, but Chamomile Flower Tea, and Hyssop Tea, are fantastic options as well. If you are keen on the flavour of mint, we like to enjoy our Hibiscus Tea iced or hot with a blend of Spearmint Tea .
