For this week, as a continuation of last week’s Plant of the Week, we are featuring our variety of hibiscus teas. We have many different types of hibiscus teas here at Incahoots, ranging from pure hibiscus to wonderful mixes of hibiscus and fruits. Some of the hibiscus teas that are available for your purchase include natural hibiscus, vanilla apple hibiscus, strawberry hibiscus, raspberry rose hibiscus, and blueberry hibiscus. We also sell organic Hibiscus Ginger, which actually has already been featured as a Tea of the Week (which you can read about by clicking here).
Hibiscus tea is also known as Agua de Jamaica, and it has a ton of health benefits. It can help treat high blood pressure and cholesterol, help with digestion, and reduce the risk of cancer. It is also beneficial in weight loss, as it can speed up the metabolism. Furthermore, it is rich in Vitamin C, minerals, and antioxidants, and can help in the treatment of hypertension and anxiety.
This tea is described as having a sour taste, similar to that of a cranberry. It can be enjoyed both hot and cold. (I would recommend drinking it iced. It is very refreshing.) We will be happy to brew up some hibiscus tea for you down here at the store, and you can also buy most of the flavors in a tin, the exception being Hibiscus Ginger, which we sell in bulk for $28 a pound!
