In fact, countries like Senegal and Jamaica have been drinking hibiscus tea for years due to its long list of health benefits. Brewed hot or cold, a cup of hibiscus tea could keep you away from hospitals.
Here are our five favorite hibiscus tea brands to try this season.
Frontier Co-op Organic Hibiscus Tea
To get the most health benefits from hibiscus tea, we recommend using the whole flower. These dried hibiscus tea leaves and flowers from Frontier Co-Op (an awesome socially conscious spice brand) can be prepared by pouring 1 cup of boiling water over 1 teaspoon of the tea mix. Cover, steep 3 to 5 minutes, and enjoy.
Traditional Medicinals Organic Hibiscus Tea (6-Pack)
If you prefer teabags over loose-leaf tea, we recommend this organic hibiscus tea from Traditional Medicinals. The main ingredient in this tart and tangy tea is, of course, hibiscus — but blackberry leaf and West Indian lemongrass leaf provide a nice citrusy lift.
The Tao of Tea Organic
Hibiscus Ginger Tea
This caffeine-free hibiscus ginger herbal blend from The Tao of Tea is another delicious organic loose-leaf tea option. With a slightly spicy flavor, this tea can help aid mild digestive issues and tastes great sipped after a big meal.
Feel Good Organics Hibiscus Flowers
$9.99 (50% off)
Sourced raw from Egypt, these dried organic hibiscus flowers from Feel Good Organics are ideal for brewing large batches of hibiscus tea. If you’re looking for a tart and refreshing batched cocktail to serve at your next spring party, use chilled, sweetened hibiscus tea.
Pure Leaf Hibiscus Brewed Herbal Tea Variety Pack (12-Pack)
$18.00 (40% off)
Skip the steeping and get straight to the good stuff with Pure Leaf’s new line of caffeine-free brewed herbal hibiscus tea. Although there’s a bit of added sugars in these sweet teas, the addition of mango, cherry, and peach in each of the three flavors adds nice balance to super-tart hibiscus.
