Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Our hibiscus flowers are ideal for brewing hibiscus tea, a smooth, relaxing, naturally caffeine-free drink with a fragrant aroma and a tangy, cranberry-like flavor. Gaze into your teacup and you'll see rehydrated hibiscus flowers serenely floating in the deep magenta-colored tea. Hot hibiscus tea is soothing in the winter, while iced hibiscus tea delivers a cool kick in the summer.
Mix hibiscus tea leaves with other herbs and flowers for flavorful herbal beverages. And don't throw out these fragrant petals after one use – the flowers can be steeped multiple times until the magenta color begins to fade. The flowers for our tea are picked from the bright red hibiscus plants, grown in warm regions around the world.
Hibiscus Tea Health Bits & Bites
1. Lowers Blood Pressure: A 2008 Tufts University study found that hypertensive adults who drank 3 cups of hibiscus tea each day were able to lower their blood pressure.
2. Good For Your Cholesterol: A 2009 study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that patients who drank 2 cups of hibiscus tea a day for a month had a significant decrease in their LDL ("bad") cholesterol and an increase in their HDL ("good") cholesterol.
3. Antioxidant Rich: Hibiscus flowers contain high concentrations of the antioxidants in the form of Vitamin C, cyaniding, and anthocyanins. These antioxidants may help mitigate damage from free radicals.
Cultures throughout history have enjoyed hibiscus tea, from the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt to many countries in Central America and the Caribbean. In Hawaiian culture, a single Hibiscus flower is usually worn by women and depending on which ear it is worn behind, it signals whether or not she is available for marriage.

“Awesome delivery and great packaging! I was so thrilled to find FRESH Hibiscus leaves for tea. I used to be able to find this product in our local hispanic/latino groceries, but have not had any luck lately. So I thank you and I love that the Hibiscus is so very fresh. I am a testimonial that this tea lowers blood pressure and I lost 15 pounds the first 8 weeks that I started drinking this tea over a year ago. Next time I order, I'm going to order 2 packages and I can't wait to try some NUTS! Great service and funny, cute packaging! THANKS!”
