Hibiscus tea, a refreshing and thirst-quenching drink
Made from dried organic hibiscus flowers, the hibiscus tea reveals a characteristic red color during the infusion. It is used in the composition of the famous karkade in Africa. This refreshing drink is made from dried hibiscus flowers, sugar and boiling water. It is usually drunk hot. The "rosehip with hibiscus" tea bags available in the shops are only a pale imitation. To find the characteristic fruity and acidulous taste of hibiscus, nothing replaces quality organic dried flowers. They can be integrated in other recipes of infusions and teas. They blend harmoniously with red fruits, but also with Sencha green tea.
