Hibiscus tea, also known as Roselle, has already made a name for itself. However, our very own infusion aims to provide our customers with a more substantial experience of the tea. Hydrate is a red hibiscus tea that provides a unique taste quite similar to cranberry. A single cup of this drinking tea can already provide you with so many health benefits.
Our red Hibiscus tea originates from the Hibiscus flower, particularly from its calyces. There are plenty of Hibiscus species but the one that makes this drinking tea so special is the Hibiscus Sadariffa.
