Hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.) is a shrubby, flowering tropical plant native to parts of North Africa and Southeast Asia. The deep red tea produced by hibiscus comes from the vibrant red flower buds that are harvested just prior to blossoming.
Hibiscus leaves, seeds, flowers and calyces have all been used in folk traditions for their beneficial properties. The calyces in particular are often used in perfumes and sachets, as well as ingredients in jams and jellies. Perhaps the most well known use of the hibiscus's flowers and ruby red calyces is to brew tea that is beautifully rich in color and refreshingly tart in taste.
Alvita Hibiscus Tea Directions:
The best way to make a good tasting cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz. of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes and remove the bag. Press the bag before removing to enhance flavor. Add honey to sweeten.

I love this tea! It has great health benefits. It is an acquired taste, but I love this tea.
This tea is definitely something worth trying out. It is caffeine free, which is great for me because I have a pretty sensitive reaction to caffeine. I do not want to consume anything with caffeine in it past 4pm because otherwise I will have a pretty tough time going to sleep that night. The flavor on this tea is cool, hibiscus. It is a good value at about $5 for 24 tea bags, and it will really help to sooth you. I always love a nice hot cup of tea in the evening or morning.
I wanted to find a natural alternative to BP medicine...this Hibiscus Tea works. The care in packaging impressed me. Reasonably priced and is available.
