From The Tea Practitioner

Beautiful, hand-picked whole hibiscus flowers from Thailand are a visual wonder. This delicate herbal flower creates a distinct vibrant red liquor – the perfect natural food colouring. The applications of hibiscus are endless and makes a daring addition to your tea practice. With notes of ripe raspberries, it is an amazing pairing with summer fruit.

Another tea from a newly arrived order to support more Black owned tea companies!

I feel sad that I didn’t know about this company sooner – they’re based in Canada and seem to offer some very unique and interesting tisanes and straight/traditional teas. The turn around time for shipping was also insanely quick! This is probably the fastest that I’ve received a tea order all year!

Today I was craving something bright, tart and flavourful which is why I started my order by cracking into this bag! And of course this delivers on all of those counts!! It’s a beauty to watch it steep, and while I know hibiscus can often be a VERY polarizing flavour I’ve grown to appreciate it a lot over the years – especially on its own! My main issue with hibiscus is really just that it’s so intense it often takes over flavour profiles – and that can irritate me when blenders use it as filler or to add colour to a tea and don’t take into account that it wont compliment the flavour of their blend or that it will mask the flavours. I also think that hibiscus has a bit of a natural berry type of flavour (certainly this one does) but it’s not a direct recreation and sometimes people rely too much on hibiscus in berry blends instead of actual berries…

Bottom line though – this was both stunning and delicious!

I don’t think I have ever seen a whole hibiscus flower to steep before!
