Hibiscus flowers have been used as medicine for a long long time, as they've been used both in Ayurveda & in Chinese medicine. They also hold a significant place in countries such as Egypt & Iran. Traditionally the flowers have been & still are enjoyed as a tea.
The base for our Hibiscus Bärbucha Kombucha is a mixture of green & black tea, plus Hibiscus flowers.
