BENEFITS OF mint and hibiscus tea

Hibiscus tea is prized as traditional medicine in West Africa and Egypt for boosting the metabolism, and for diuretic effects similar to cranberry. It’s packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, as well as fruity flavour. Peppermint tea is enjoyed around the world at all times of day, and its digestive benefits make it the perfect after dinner drink. Like all our herbal teas, it’s naturally caffeine free. I’ve found our mint and hibiscus tea popular with those with diabetes or high blood pressure.

Our tea blend

Our Ruby Mint tea combines two favourite teas from my travels – deep red hibiscus tea, with its fruity, rhubarb-like flavour, and peppermint tea for a burst of aromatic menthol. Together, they make a wonderfully refreshing brew with enough oomph to satisfy even coffee drinkers! It’s also rather beautiful.



Mint 60%, hibiscus.

how to brew loose leaf teahow to enjoy our tea

Enjoy at any time of day, hot or cold.


Tip: Fruity hibiscus is a favourite refresher in many hot countries, and can be sweetened with honey and even used as a mixer. For a perfect summer cocktail, try our Ruby Mint Tea with gin on the rocks.


Use the tea in puddings for flavour. Great colour, too!


Hibiscus tea starts off sweet when first made, and then progresses to increasingly tart, the longer it is brewed.


This is a ‘robust’-tasting tea, and I find those with strong characters tend to love it.


Want to know more about hibiscus tea?

Lots of us are familiar with mint tea from out in the garden – the heady scent of crushed peppermint and spearmint is a summer-long favourite. But what about hibiscus? Can such a beautiful flower really be tasty, too?


In fact, hibiscus tea is enjoyed all over the world, for its gorgeous ruby colour, tanginess and flavour. It goes by many different names, including rosella or roselle (South America), red sorrel, Jamaican sorrel, Agua de Jamaica (Caribbean), sour tea (Iran), bissap (Senegal, and karkade (Egypt, Sudan).


If you haven’t yet switched on to the global phenomenon that is hibiscus tea, now’s the time!

Stimulating & Refreshing
"I love this tea as it smells and tastes amazing. On days that I have loads of paperwork to get through I make a big pot in the morning and just keep refreshing my cup all day as it keeps my mind stimulated and awake.
The smell also wakes you up if you need a wee pick me up during the day, it refreshing and lively too."

Full of Flavour
One of my favourite blends - refreshing, whole leaves of Peppermint and fruity Hibiscus petals. Great after meals and for a late afternoon non-caffeine pick me up. Even better, one bag lasts for ages.
