Good quality, straightforward hibiscus flower tea. Bulk hibiscus flowers are cheap, but quality can be hit or miss. Though many (or even most) blended herbal teas contain hibiscus, few brands offer unblended hibiscus teabags and the ones that do tend to be overpriced.

Hibiscus is tart and fruity, almost like unsweetened Kool-Aid. If it's stale, the fruitiness fades, leaving just sour. The Badia was clearly fresh when packed in the foil pouches and is pleasantly flavored.

While not as cheap as bulk hibiscus petals (often well under a dollar an ounce), $2.49 for 20 Badia teabags is comparable in price to other grocery store herbal teas.

Delightful tea made from the dried calyx of a hibiscus-type plant. The taste is floral and citrus and the color is ruby red. Red Zinger tea is the name given by Celestial Seasonings but Badia's is much nicer in my opinion.

Online you can find recipes to make a Jamaican version of this tea adding ginger and other herbs but a teabag alone with no additions (I add sugar while it is hot) makes a wonderful tea. Cold, iced sorrel tea (hibiscus tea) is fantastic!

My only problem with it is that I get so addicted to it I drink too much and it upsets my stomach due to too much citrus which I don't tolerate well.

You can also make a Jamaican Punch using this tea and adding rum (and other herbs as well).
