Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea is a Herbal blend combining two of the tastiest, most health-beneficial ingredients around. When brewed, it has a unique bittersweet flavour with bold, tangy notes and floral undertones.
We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory. This is our way of guaranteeing not only quality but also consistency. Why not buy and brew today?
It’s also worth noting that Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea, due to the absence of “real” Tea leaves, is 100% caffeine-free. This makes it the perfect alternative for those looking to cut down their intake. What’s more, and perhaps more importantly, its prevalence in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants contributes significantly to your daily nutrient requirement.
About Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea Blend
Rosehip Tea, in particular, comes from the fruit of the Rosa (Rose) plant belonging to the Rosaceae family. The plant itself is a herbaceous shrub found throughout much of the world, with evidence suggesting it originated from Persia (modern-day Iraq and Iran).
Today, most people associate it with the beautiful flowers it produces, although rosehips have much to offer, too.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was one of the first practices to recognise Rosehip Tea benefits. According to TCM, known for being a holistic view of medicine, these little gems can treat kidney and urinary issues.
Indian Ayurvedic Medicine later used them for improved brain function. We now know that they treat acne and mild arthritis due to their anti-inflammatory properties.
Hibiscus Tea, meanwhile, is becoming increasingly popular for similar reasons. It is a Herbal Tea of unparalleled character and charm, originating from a genus of flowering plants belonging to the Malvaceae family. Specifically, we use the Hibiscus sabdariffa variety in the making of this beverage, which has many noteworthy qualities.
Once drunk by Egyptian Pharaohs to combat the fierce desert heat, Hibiscus Tea is today chosen for lowering blood pressure. In fact, according to the American Heart Association, just three cups a day is all it takes to make a difference. The reason this works is, much like Rosehip Tea, because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Blending these two ingredients, then, makes for a match made in heaven!
