|About Hibiscus - Organically Grown Herbal Tisane
Hibiscus is an ornamental flower. One specific variety, the sabdariffa type, produces the dark red, rind like ingredient that finds its way into many tisanes. The calyx, the case (or husk) of the bud, is the part of the plant that is harvested and dried to be used in teas and tisanes.
A Few Words On Taste
Hibiscus brews a dark red, tart and tangy cup. Perfect with a touch of honey or over ice in the summer.
- Fill your kettle with freshly drawn water from the purest available source.
- Heat the water to boiling.
- Measure approximately 1 rounded Tblsp. of chamomile per 6-8 ounces of water.
- Place the tisane in your preferred brewing vessel: teapot, filter basket, large tea ball, etc.
- Pour the heated water over the tisane and steep for 3-5 minutes, (if a longer time is allowed the tisane will not become bitter) then serve.
