There’s a reason why Hibiscus is found so often in commercial tea blends. In addition to its many health benefits, like lowering blood sugar and benefiting the cardiovascular system, it lends a fantastic taste to any cup. This herb is just as popular for its flavor as it is for its positive effect on the body. It’s refreshing, tart, and super easy to mix in with other herbs and tea leaves. It is fabulous over ice in the summer!
Hibiscus works great with fruit-forward herbal blends as well as with green tea. It’s slightly tart, floral, and packs a lot of flavor while simultaneously maintaining a “clean” flavor profile. A little goes a long way, but the flavor is forgiving and hard to overdo. For this reason, Hibiscus is great for beginners and expert blenders alike.
