Pyur PH Hibiscus Tea
A floral, fruity treat
Packed with antioxidants, this sweet floral tea is wonderful in both hot and cold forms. It’s great for whenever you want a lighter, brighter tea for your day.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Its deep pink hue is the first thing you notice about Pyur PH Hibiscus Tea. It’s a beautiful, appealing color, and with its fruity, floral aroma, it’s hard to resist. Whether you take it hot or cold, hibiscus tea will remind you of a flowery garden on a bright, windy day.
Sweet, with a slightly tart aftertaste, it’s reminiscent of cranberries. And aside from being delicious, it’s also loaded with antioxidants, and can help with weight loss.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
In a tea infuser, whether in a kettle or a cup, take 1-2 teaspoons of Pyur PH Hibiscus tea. Let steep in hot water for 3-5 minutes. The longer the steeping time, the stronger the flavor.
This tea is also incredible as cold brew. Place your tea infuser with 2-3 teaspoons of Pyur PH Hibiscus tea (cold brew usually has more water, so more tea is needed) in a container of water, and place in the refrigerator for 6-12 hours. The longer the steeping time, the stronger the flavor.
Add honey or sweetener, or infuse with lemon if you wish, for both hot and cold options.
TEABAGS VS. LOOSE-LEAF
Teabags are made of small pieces of tea, essentially tea leaves that have been broken down. This means that there is more opportunity for the essential oils that makes tea so flavorful and aromatic to evaporate. This will make the tea dull and stale. Teabags, especially those packed in paper boxes and paper wrapping, often have this problem in regards to freshness.
Loose-leaf tea, on the other hand, is not pre-bunched together in a bag. When steeping loose-leaf tea, there is more room for the leaves to absorb the hot water, and expand while they infuse. The water is then allowed to flow properly through the leaves, extracting all the flavor, aroma, vitamins, and minerals that the leaves have to offer.
Store your tea in odor-free, airtight containers. Keep them in a dry, dark place to avoid exposure to heat, excessive light, and humidity. Properly stored, teas will retain full potency and flavor for 18 to 24 months.
