Hibiscus the Plant and History
The Hibiscus plant, specifically the Hibiscus Sabdariffa variety used in our Herbal Tea, is a member of the mallow family, Malvaceae. It thrives in temperate, subtropical and tropical climates around the world, its flowers varying in colour from the palest white to the deepest red.
It’s these flowers used in the making of Hibiscus Tea Bags, as well as all other Hibiscus products stocked by us.
Historically, people have used Hibiscus for its medicinal qualities since the time of ancient Egypt. During this period, Pharaohs utilised the herb as a coolant in order to combat the fierce scorn of the desert heat.
Others applied Hibiscus Tea Benefits to their daily lives for treating heart and nerve diseases. Nowadays, such benefits have the backing of much of modern science.

Plastic Tea Bags Microplastics Vs Plastic Free Tea Bags
But there’s yet more to note about these pockets of goodness. Rather than using Plastic Tea Bags microplastics, which some companies make using harmful, environment-destroying materials, we opt for Plastic Free Tea Bags.
These we create using wood pulp and vegetable starch, thus making them a “bio-plastic.” Although they aren’t quite Tea Bags without plastic, they’re the next best thing.
Are Tea Bags compostable, too, using this method? Yes. Indeed, from now on, our products will be compostable to EN-13432 standard (EU standard for industrially compostable materials).

Benefits of Drinking Hibiscus Tea Bags
Hibiscus tea can lower blood pressure in part due to its anti-inflammatory properties. This is according to a study by the American Heart Association, which concluded that just three cups a day is all it takes.
The research project saw sixty-five participants aged between 30-70, all of whom were recognised as “at-risk” from high blood pressure, split into two groups.
The first group of participants consumed Hibiscus three times a day, while the second group received a placebo. After six weeks, the results determined that the Hibiscus Group “showed an average fall of 7.2 percent in blood pressure, with some recording a 13.2 percent drop.
The placebo group, in comparison, recorded a 1.3 percent drop”. Pretty neat for your morning brew, wouldn’t you agree?
