A refreshing, vitamin C rich hibiscus herbal infusion from Malawi
Select Variant: Caddy - 40g brews 10 cups


After blooming, the hibiscus flower remains on the tree only for a day. This fact has granted its blossoms a mystical symbolism in different cultures. An intense pink-colored infusion comes to us from Malawi, where a small farmer community carefully removes the bright calyx of the flower by hand. Its taste, a mix of sour and sweet, makes it refreshing and thirst quenching.
