Pure Hibiscus flowers for herbal tea and infusions. Hibiscus actually comes in hundreds of different varieties and different colours. Our Hibiscus is the prestigious species grown in Nigeria, where it grows best into a deep red highly fragrant flower. This is one of the most expensive Hibiscus varieties in the world. Hibiscus is popular used for making Hibiscus tea - an acidic, refreshing beverage. Mix with a little bit of honey for balance and it's cooling as well as naturally full of antioxidants. Hibiscus is actually one of the most concentrated sources of antioxidants grown in nature!

*INDUSTRY SPECIFIC TERMINOLOGY.
Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
This was the first time I've tried hibiscus from Iran. It's high quality and makes a nice tea, but I must admit I prefer the kind I have bought previously in Hong Kong. The colour and flavour is more intense. Perhaps they use it differently in Iran - I should check out some recipes.
All received better than expected. Great service. Great packing.
Very nice product with perfect packing and quick shipping
