Naturally caffeine free, high in vitamin C and antioxidants, Hibiscus flower tea steeps into a deep red herbal infusion that delivers a tart and exotic flavor, reminiscent of fresh cranberries. Hibiscus petals brew tart, but still sweet enough to drink without sugar. Refreshing brewed hot or iced, its the perfect beverage year-round.
Some tea drinkers add a pinch of hibiscus, for added color and zing, to jazz up their favorite tea or tisane blends. Infused hibiscus can be used to make popsicles, two layer lemonade or as a flavor ingredient in a variety of desserts, snacks, beverages and cocktails. Use Hibiscus tea to make a phenomenal simple syrup.

Recipe: Hibiscus Ice Cubes
Caffeine-free and high in vitamin C, Hibiscus Herbal Tea Ice cubes are the perfect way to chill your favorite warm-weather beverage. And the best part is these ice cubes add flavor and a pretty rosy color as they melt instead of diluting your drink.
Brew 2 cups of Hibiscus Herbal Tea and let cool. Pour the brewed tea into an ice cube tray and freeze until firm.
Add the frozen ice cubes to a glass and pour over lemonade (shown here), 7Up, Sprite, Gingerale, iced tea or hibiscus iced tea. Garnish and serve.
