There are an estimated three hundred species of the hibiscus plant - we use only one, Hibiscus sabdariffa. Nevertheless, all species of hibiscus 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!
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, 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!

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".
