Pomegranate Hibiscus Green Tea

Hibiscus and Pomegranate were made for each other!  Tart with floral highlights a cleansing and highly refreshing cup in our Pomegranate Hibiscus Green Tea.

It is believed that the first instance of the mixing of dried hibiscus petals and pomegranate took place in the harbor of Hanga Roa, the capital of Rapa Nui, otherwise known as Easter Island. Polynesian migrants, after traveling vast swathes of the Pacific in large canoes, are believed to have landed on the island some time around 400 CE, bringing many of their customs and cultural artifacts with them. Ocean legend has it that among other things, hibiscus flowers made the trip. For centuries the islanders lived in peace and harmony, erecting the giant statues for which the island is famous. As they did, the beautiful, highly fragrant flowers, flourished along with the island’s population. While native species of fruit were plentiful, it would not be centuries later that pomegranates would make their appearance.

The ruby red fruit is thought to have made its arrival to the island with slaves deported from Peru in 1870. By that time Pomegranates were well known in South America having been brought over by Jesuit missionaries who cultivated them in great numbers. The native islanders were quickly smitten with the fruit and began blending its juice with the island’s own agricultural bounty. As the harbor served as a sort of marketplace, it is believed that at some point, an enterprising marketer blended hibiscus and pomegranate together to great effect. He found the flavorful combination to drip with round floral notes and juicy berry astringency – a hit!

Whether or not the legend can be believed, what is certain that the tart combination of the flower and fruit is a winner. The superb cup offers a sweet, bright nose, with supple notes of honey, herbs and berries offset by grassy notes of moss from the green tea and a smooth palate cleanser of a finish. Put simply – a fabulous cup worthy of a tall-tale or two of its own.

If you like hibiscus teas, many of our herbal teas have some hibiscus as an ingredient.  We also carry plain Hibiscus Herbal Tea.
