A delicious herbal infusion made from the beautiful red petals of Hibiscus sabdariffa.

These whole hibiscus flowers produce a beautiful tea, raspberry red in colour.

Hibiscus is enjoyed all over the world both hot or cold - often sweetened with sugar or honey. In Jamaica and many other islands in the Caribbean the drink is known as Sorrel. It is known as Bissap in West Africa, Karkadé in Egypt and Sudan, Gongura in India and Brazil and most famously as Flor de Jamaica in Mexico.

It is a mild diuretic, rich in vitamin C and is believed to help reduce blood pressure.
