Hibiscus: Hibiscus is a flowering plant native to subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. The plant is recognized by its large and often colorful five-petal blossoms.

Hibiscus tea has a flavor profile that includes fruity, sweet, sour, and astringent notes. The tea is often compared to cranberries due to its tart yet sweet flavor.
