Hibiscus is a tropical flower known for its ornate array of colored flowers- but we are most familiar with the bright ruby red ones!


Hibiscus has a tart, cranberry-like flavor and is loaded with health benefits. It has polyphenols and the antioxidant Anthocyanin- which gives it that gorgeous red color!
