Can We Make Tea of Hibiscus Flowers?

Sunday, June 16, 2019
Yellow Hibiscus flower

We just went to the farmer market, we interest in Hibiscus flowers. There are plenty of colors, some of them are peach, purple, pink and many more.

I took pictures of three flower colors from three different plants. The colors are yellow, red and orange. Look so beautiful.

Flowers grow in tropical and warm temperate regions. They grow in America too, but it is said that they will not survive during winter or colder temperature.

From reading, genus Hibiscus has several hundred of species. Quite plenty compared to other genus.

Red flower

In addition to their beauty, Hibiscus flowers, leaves and plant parts may be processed to be a tea. Healthy tea.

Honestly, I never tried it. Some literature said that we just dry hibiscus (flowers, leaves and plant parts) properly, then be used as a tea like other commercial teas.

Hibiscus tea also called as herbal tea or a tisane, French for “herbal infusion.” We can make it for hot tea or ice tea.

Orange color

It is said that Hibiscus tea has several health benefits, they are:
- Lower blood pressure
- Improve liver health
- May reduce body weight
- Contain antioxidant to improve healthy cells
- Decrease blood fat and blood sugar

Can we drink Hibiscus tea every day? The answer is yes, but no more than 15 cups of tea per day.

Over drinking of Hibiscus tea may cause nausea and headache. In case of diabetes patients, too much drink of Hibiscus tea could lead to sudden drop of blood sugar.

Do you have Hibiscus flowers and ever drink Hibiscus tea?

  11. Bonjour,

    Les Hibiscus sont des fleurs splendides...Il en existe qui résistent à de faibles températures l'hiver.
    En revanche je n'ai jamais dégusté des infusions de fleurs d'Hibiscus. Parfois dans certains thés que j'achète j'y ai retrouvé dans la composition entre autres de la fleur d'hibiscus.
    Une très jolie publication.

    Gros bisous 🌺

  16. Hello tanza
    I also love hibiscus, but they die in my garden during the winter, because where I live there is a small micro climate in which the nights are cold, but this flower exists all over Portugal, it's beautiful !!
    I already drank hibiscus tea from the Lipton brand I think this brand is sold also in the USA.

    On my beach there are no tourists because it's not the time for the Portuguese to go to the beach, they go in July and August and September. This beach is very well known because here happens the national surfing championship.

  20. It’s only recently that I learned that tea is made from a type of camellia leaf, another beautiful flower that grows well around my house.
