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.

“Just like the last delivery, I have to open everything and take a sample. It's like my birthday every time one of your boxes arrives. Everything is delicious, of course. I was surprised at how yummy the 12-flavored gummy bears are. I am now off to look up drink recipes for the hibiscus flowers, like the agua de Jamaica I once had at a Mexican restaurant.”

“I am so absolutely thrilled to have found nuts.com. During the summer I live in an area where it is hard to find certain organic items. I love hibiscus tea and drink lots of it. I drink it iced all year long. The quality of the hibiscus flowers I received was very fresh and very high grade. I am extremely happy and will definitely become a regular.
Thanks so much nutty family you make me laugh too!!!! :D”

“Thanks to all the "Nuts" at Nuts.com for growing the absolute best quality of hibiscus leaves on planet Earth. After preparing my first kettle of tea from your product, I knew immediately that it would forever be a staple in my pantry.
It offers me hope that I will soon be able to quit taking the chemically-made blood pressure medicine I've been taking for years.
Another plus: I love your product packaging! It makes for a lively conversation.
