WHAT IS HIBISCUS?
It’s a beautiful and versatile purple flower that grows in many tropical regions around the world – from Haiti to South Korea, the Philippines and the Ivory Coast, which is where all of our hibiscus flowers are shipped from and then made available to buy online at our websites, in our stores or at the events we attend across the country.
It is used not only in landscaping to decorate gardens and balconies, but also in paper-making, food and beverage and as natural medicine.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE HIBISCUS FLOWER?
Hibiscus flowers are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, making it a genuine superfood.
In many African countries it is used to lower high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and to treat heart disease.
Hibiscus tea is naturally calorie and caffeine-free.
HOW CAN I USE IT?
Dried hibiscus is most commonly used as a tea and it is sometimes mixed with ginger or with a squeeze of fresh orange to obtain an uplifting drink. It can be served hot or iced.
For a teacup, steep half a teaspoon (3-5g) of hibiscus flower in boiling water for 5 minutes and serve in a mug.
You can use a teapot with an infuser or a strainer to remove the flowers.
Its flavour is naturally tangy, so a tiny bit of sugar or natural sweetener is often added.
SACO Trading in Manchester only offers the very best products, shipped directly from the Ivory Coast in Africa, and our hibiscus flowers are no exception. It is 100% pure and its loose flower petals are naturally dried.
