A NOTE FROM YOUR TEA SOMMELIER FOR YOU
This deep red drink with its rich, bold, citrusy flavor is so uniquely hibiscus. In ancient Egypt, the tea was served cold and used primarily by Pharaohs to cool off in the desert heat. Hibiscus tea played an important role in several religious and healing ceremonies in the Nile Valley during this time. Today, traditional Egyptian and Sudanese weddings still typically contain a toast using hibiscus tea.
Sipping on a steaming cup of Egyptian Hibiscus is thought to promote relaxation and ease the aches and malaise associated with colds. In Africa, it has been a sought-after beverage for centuries to regulate the body temperature, lower blood pressure, and support heart health. Modern research has shown that it may be used to treat high cholesterol levels and digestive issues.
There is so much to love about Egyptian Hibiscus. Happily sip this tea through a meal and afterwards. Ideal for a tired body or to soothe a fasting stomach. In the middle of a hot day, when you're dying for a drink, a cool, tart and refreshing Egyptian Hibiscus is the perfect thing.
