DESCRIPTION

Cranberry Hibiscus, False Rosselle, Hibiscus acetosella

Cranberry Hibiscus is a hardy perennial hibiscus that can grow higher than 6 feet tall with delicious red leaves. It flourishes during the summer months, providing ample leaves to harvest, and retreats into hibernation during our tropical winters.

A member of the Mallow family, Cranberry Hibiscus is nourishing and demulcent in nature. Its high vitamin C levels boost immunity and the bioavailability of other nutrients, while its slight mucilage nourishes the mucus membranes and increases moisture in the body.

With a distinct cranberry-like flavor and rich fuchsia coloring, Cranberry Hibiscus is both a tasty and nutritions addition to our tea blends.
