About Hibiscus in this Herbal Blend

There are an estimated three hundred species of the hibiscus plant - we use only one, Hibiscus sabdariffa. Nevertheless, all species of hibiscus, like our Hibiscus Tea Bags are a genus of flowering plants belonging to the mallow family, Malvaceae.

The Hibiscus sabdariffa plant grows in temperate subtropical and tropical regions. Under the right conditions, it can even thrive in indoor environments, making it exceptionally versatile.

To make Hibiscus Tea, one harvests the flowers of the plant. These flowers, when infused in boiling water, create a uniquely tart flavour similar to the taste of cranberries or pomegranates.

The Ancient Egyptians were the first to enjoy Hibiscus Tea. Some historians suggest that Pharaohs enjoyed these beverages to combat the fierce scorn of the desert heat while cruising along the river Nile.

Egyptians also used Hibiscus Tea to treat heart and nerve diseases. They even used it as a diuretic to increase urine production. Today, not-so-ancient Egyptians, as well as everyone else, enjoy Hibiscus Tea for this very same reason!

About Rosehip Tes in this Blend

Rosehips are the fruits of the Rosa genus. They may not offer the same beauty as the flowers, but certainly provide other qualities much sought after. When brewed, these wonderful gems create an earthy-floral fusion of flavour like no other. And that is just the beginning.

Rosehips contain a wealth of beneficial vitamins and minerals capable of combating free radicals in the body. Free radicals are the product of natural, though harmful, human oxidation.

When left unchecked, oxidation can lead to many complications. This includes cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes and even cancer. Rosehips Tea Benefits, as well as Hibiscus flowers, can reportedly reduce these risks. This is thanks to their battle against free radicals.

Thousands of years ago, rosehips had a close association with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Practitioners used them to treat kidney and urinary issues. In Indian Ayurvedic Medicine, people went as far as to use Rosehips in a tonic to increase the brain's capacity!

Combined, these two ingredients make a match made in heaven. Combined, these two ingredients make our Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea Bags. So, what are you waiting for? Try this delicious Tea today. We pack everything fresh to order here in our Kent-based factory. This ensures not only quality but also consistency!

Why You Should Choose Tea Bags Without Plastic

Have you ever wondered “what are Tea Bags made of?” The answer, in most cases, is Plastic Tea Bags Microplastics. This isn’t the way we do things, however, having recently introduced our eco-friendly Tea Bags without Plastic. But why does this matter? And why should you make the switch by choosing our Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea Bags?

According to Canadian researchers at McGill University in Montreal, some types of Tea Bag (from other companies) shed remarkably high levels of these petrochemical-based materials into water.

While The World Health Organisation (WHO) notes that microplastics don’t appear to pose a risk to humans, it recognises that studies are inconclusive. Perhaps the worst thing is their impact on the environment.

The best alternative, then, is to opt for our Plastic Free Tea Bags - including Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea Bags. Although technically classified as a “bioplastic,” these pockets of goodness do much to support mother nature.

What’s more, they’re considered Biodegradable Tea Bags, so it’s a win on all fronts. Realise their full potential with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company today.

Health Benefits of Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea

Rosehip contains Vitamins A, B-Complex, D, E, K, and P, as well as Calcium, Carotenoids, Cobalt, Copper, Flavonoids, Iron, Magnesium, Malic, Potassium and Zinc. These components can help those with colds and the flu.

Hibiscus, meanwhile, famously lowers blood pressure. Drinking just three cups of any Hibiscus Tea, including this one, is all it takes. This is according to a study conducted by the American Heart Association (AHA).

The research project saw sixty-five people aged between 30 to 70, all of whom were considered "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 consumed 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".

  3. When a certain company changed their morning herbal tea I was bitterly disappointed. Then I someone pointed me in the direction of these tea bags and they were a lifesaver. A really refreshing way to wake up in the morning.
