All you need to know about Zobo Leaves

Hibiscus or Zobo leaves are native to West Africa. 

You may also hear the plant referred to as roselle, bissap or sorrel.

 You can steep the dried pieces in hot water to create the deep rose-colored infusion known as hibiscus tea. Plain, this tea has a subtle, tart and floral flavor that isn’t overpowering. The flowers also work as a great flavor-infuser in other drinks.


Health Benefits

Hibiscus flowers contain high amounts of antioxidants, including Vitamin C. but it varies depending on how much hibiscus you use in your food or drink. A cup of unsweetened hibiscus tea contains zero calories and is completely caffeine-free.


 Ways to Enjoy

Making your own infusion lets you add whatever flavors you like or experiment with the liquid.

You can brew hibiscus tea extra strong to use in cocktails and mix in fresh fruit or 100% fruit juice for some added sweetness

You can also add sugar and less water to create a thick, pink syrup or try steeping hibiscus in vinegar for a flavored vinegar.
