Hibiscus (Cut & Sifted) - Kosher - ORGANIC - (1.00 lb.)
Bulk Hibiscus Flowers are hand-picked and sun-dried for natural red-orange color and fruity flavor.
The tropical plant is used to make a healthful tea, as an ingredient in cosmetics and as a natural dye.
The beautiful, deep red , purplish hued dried flowers lend an attractive red color to teas which have it as an ingredient.
Common names include rose mallow and roselle.
In Mexico, hibiscus makes a chilled tea known as Agua de Jamaica which features plenty of sugar to balance natural tartness.
Naturally caffeine-free, tart and colorful, hibiscus tea is delightful on its own (hot or cold, sweetened or not) or as the basis of an healthful herbal tea blend.
Suggested Uses: It combines especially well with green or black teas and with other herbs such as peppermint, rosehips, spearmint, linden leaf and lemongrass. Also try it mixed with a juice (such as cranberry), lemonade or sparkling water for a refreshing spritzer. Add to potpourris and decorative jars for gorgeous, deep color.
Safety Guidelines: Often intercropped with peanuts, so people with nut allergies should avoid this product.
Directions: To prepare as a tea, pour 8 oz. boiling water over 1-2 teaspoons of herb. Cover and steep for 5-10 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
