5 Delicious Hibiscus Tea Recipes You’ll Want To Try

Disclaimer! Take Everything With a Grain of Salt

I’m not a doctor! I’m a tea enthusiast that researched the hibiscus tea benefits and risks to share with you. If you have any pre-existing health conditions, or are unsure if you should drink hibiscus tea, I urge you talk to your doctor before trying anything.

It’s also important to note that although hibiscus has been around for centuries, it’s only recently been the subject of scientific study. Because of this, there isn’t as much information out there on hibiscus tea as there is on green, or even black teas.

On top of that, the studies that have been conducted didn’t all involve human trials or even the tea form of the plant. Most of them either use animals or test tubes and are using hibiscus extracts or supplements.

This is just something to keep in mind, as this can still give us a good idea of the potential hibiscus tea benefits and risks.

What Is Hibiscus Tea?

Hibiscus tea comes from steeping the petals of the hibiscus flower. Hibiscus is a flowering plant from the mallow family, found in tropical climates around the world. The flower, and sometimes its leaves, are dried out to use for tea. 

When steeped, the water becomes a beautiful, rich, deep red and has a refreshing, tart flavour. 

Interested in trying some hibiscus tea, traditional medicinals is my favourite hibiscus tea bag (find it one Amazon here). If you’re interested in buying loose leaf dried hibiscus to steep, you can buy it here on Amazon.

What Are The Hibiscus Tea Side Effects?

1. Contains Antioxidants [Benefit]

Out of all herbal teas, hibiscus actually has the highest amount of antioxidants. Antioxidants help repair damaged cells (I talk all about them in my post on how tea can actually help you live longer).
 
In one study using hibiscus extract on rats, their antioxidants increased and the harmful effects of free radicals were reduced by up to 92%.
 
Hibiscus also contains a specific type of antioxidant called anthocyanin. This type of antioxidant is also found in berries. It’s what gives them their nice, red colour, and has been linked to reducing your risk of chronic diseases.

2. Lowers Blood Pressure [Benefit & Risk]

Studies on hibiscus tea and blood pressure are some of the only ones done with human subjects. Although all the results showed that this plant can indeed help lower high blood pressure, it can also be dangerous to anyone who’s BP is already low.

This applies to those already taking medication to lower blood pressure; avoid hibiscus! You don’t want your blood pressure becoming too low and you risk other side effects (like hallucinations).

3. Lowers Blood Sugar [Benefit & Risk]

Unlike blood pressure studies, there haven’t been any human trials yet for links between blood sugar and hibiscus. These studies were conducted on rats. Nevertheless, they still saw a significant change. In a 2013 rat study with hibiscus extracts, 12% of the diabetic rats saw a decrease in blood glucose. Interestingly, the non-diabetic rats saw no change at all.

They learned that hibiscus tea is a good drink for those with Type2 diabetes to help regulate their blood sugar levels. Just like having low blood pressure, decreasing your blood sugar levels too much comes with its own risks. 

Don’t drink it if you’re already taking medication to regulate your blood sugar. And you should also avoid it if you’re having, or recovering from, surgery. Apparently, your blood sugar levels can be hard to control in those situations.

4. Affects Cholesterol [Benefit]

During the blood sugar rat trials, the hibiscus extract also affected the rats’ cholesterol levels. In fact, a lot of people with diabetes also suffer from high blood fat levels (high “bad” cholesterol). So more studies were done and showed that hibiscus doesn’t just affect cholesterol levels of those with diabetes but even affected those without.

The only odd thing was that each study had different results. In one study, “bad” cholesterol decreased, but in others, it only increased “good” cholesterol and had no effect on the “bad”. 

There’s definitely a link between the two, we just don’t know how to get consistent results. More studies need to be done to really figure it out.

5. Benefits Of Hibiscus Tea On Overall Heart Health

Hibiscus does more than lower blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. If kept at constant low levels, these benefits will lead to better heart health.

It’s important to keep your blood pressure at a stable level because over time high blood pressure can put unnecessary strain on your heart. This weakens it and increases your chances of heart disease. 

High blood sugar and fat levels can also lead to stroke and heart disease. So once again, it’s important to regulate.

6. Affects Your Weight [Benefit]

There have been a few trials that found hibiscus affected your weight. It either helped with weight loss or prevented weight gain

Hibiscus Promotes Weight Loss

A human trial in Taiwan used hibiscus extract for 12 weeks and all subjects saw a change. Results included reduction in overall body weight, body fat, and hip to waist ratio. It turns out hibiscus actually contains a few anti-obesity properties.

Hibiscus activates the AMPK compound which is found in many anti-obesity drugs. Once activated, it stimulates the breakdown of fats.

Hibiscus Can Prevent Weight Gain

We already know that hibiscus lowers your blood sugar, but as a bonus side effect, this actually helps prevents weight gain as well. Low blood sugar decreases your appetite and motivates a healthy metabolism. This stops you from overeating; preventing you from further weight gain. 

Hibiscus tea also has zero calories if you don’t add any sweeteners. It makes the perfect thirst-quenching replacement to our beloved sodas and fruit juices and it’s a step up from drinking plain water. If you can’t drink it without adding a sweetener, try adding a lemon wedge instead! Or see my recipes for how to enjoy hibiscus tea!

7. Induces Menstruation [Benefit & Risk]

Hibiscus also affects estrogen. This means that drinking hibiscus tea can actually induce menstruation. This is one of the examples of a hibiscus tea side effect that is beneficial to some but a risk to others.  

For some women, inducing menstruation is a good thing. If you have an irregular cycle it can actually help regulate your period. Or, even if you’re already regular, you can brew a cup of hibiscus tea to help with cramps.

But hibiscus tea risks are high for pregnant women. By inducing menstruation it increases your chance of having a miscarriage. Even if you’re only trying to conceive, it’s still not advised to drink hibiscus tea. It could make your chances of conception a lot harder. 

You should also avoid hibiscus if you’re taking any birth control pills or are breastfeeding. Continue reading about the relationship between hibiscus tea and menstruation.

8. AntiBacterial Properties [Benefit]

Hibiscus tea doesn’t just look or taste like cranberry juice, it also has the same healing properties. Like cranberry juice, hibiscus works wonders for getting rid of and preventing urinary tract infections (UTIs).

I won’t go into the details for this one (but you can find more info here), or just know that it has anti-bacterial properties!

hibiscus-tea-latte

9. Interacts With Medications [Hibiscus Tea Risks]

Because hibiscus is an herb, it can interact with medications, bringing added risks. The most concerning interaction is with acetaminophen (the active ingredients in Tylenol). There haven’t been enough studies to fully describe the risks yet, but we know that both are processed in your liver. So there are concerns that it could be very toxic. It’s probably best to stay away from mixing Tylenol and hibiscus in the meantime. 

And as I said before, don’t drink hibiscus tea if you’re on medication for blood pressure or blood sugar. The combination of both can lower either one too much.

Does Hibiscus Tea Cause Hallucinations?

There have been some reports of people claiming to feel woozy after drinking hibiscus tea. It’s happened often enough that the terms ‘hibiscus drunk‘ and ‘hibiscus intoxication‘ have been created.

To date, there is no scientific evidence of hibiscus tea side effects making people drunk and/or causing hallucinations. 

A common theory for why ‘hibiscus intoxication’ happens is that it’s result of peoples’ blood pressure becoming too low. As I mentioned, hibiscus tea is known for lowering your blood pressure.

When your blood pressure becomes too low, this can lead you to feeling light headed, and well, drunk, and possibly hallucinating.

How Much Hibiscus Tea Can You Drink?

If you’re not at risk health wise by drinking hibiscus tea, it’s still best not to overdo it. There still isn’t enough research done on hibiscus tea, so it’s recommended to limit your consumption to 2-3 cups per day.

  1. Thanks for this thorough run down of hibiscus tea! I feel like the West is obsessed with this plant but it is important to know that there can be risks associated with a super flowers like this. Also: I did not know there was a chance it could induce menstruation – I am 100% down for that!

      1. I purchased a bag of loose hibiscus flowers from an Egypt market a few years ago, long before I discovered I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I made hibiscus tea when I got home and almost instantly upon drinking it I felt very dizzy and like passing out, it was a very worrying experience especially when a simple flower tea can have that effect.

        1. Hi Denise,
          That is definitely very worrying. Tea can react differently with different people so not everyone will have the same experience with hibiscus tea. At least it was nothing worse and now you can stay far away from this flower

  2. It’s a wonderful tea I have ever drank. It lowers excess sugar, and high blood pressure. I feel refreshed each time I drink it.

        1. Whoa! I had no idea that hibiscus tea had risks and benefits. I thought it was probably the least powerful herb in my basket. WRONG!! I stumbled upon this article when looking for why I started my period after 8 long months without one. A recent blood test confirmed (near zero estrogen) I’m going through menopause at age 45. I had one cup of diluted Jamaican Dr. Juan’s hibiscus tea and began spotting 12 hours later. Yikes. That’s some powerful stuff!!

          1. Hi Ginger, That’s INCREDIBLE to hear! I’m so happy for you and hope hibiscus tea continues to help!

        1. Hi James,

          I have the furthest thing from a green thumb XD I would check the climate where you live first to see if the plant could survive!

      1. In jordan we put lose hibiscus in a pot and pour boiled water from the kettle over it. We find drink it too sweet, just enough sweet to still enjoy a slight tartness. We add a dash of rose water which enhances the flavor dramatically. Some drink it from the fridge, I drink it room temp from the stove top.

        1. Hi Ayah,

          That’s really interesting to know, thanks so much for sharing! I’ll definitely have to get my hands on some rose water now and try that out – sounds delicious!

  3. Since I started taking hibiscus teach regularly my blood pleasure has remain stable. Thanks for the information

      1. Hi Rosemary, because hibiscus is known for inducing menstruation it can also lead to miscarriages. Because of that, I would avoid hibiscus if possible while trying to conceive.

        1. Hibiscus has helped me lose weight! I do add monkfruit sweetener to sweeten a little so it won’t be so tart.

          1. Hi Danette,

            That’s great! I’ve never heard of monkfruit sweetener before, I’ll have to give it a try!

      2. It’s highly dangerous to use hibiscus while you are trying to conceive, it could lead to miscarriage. I recommend you avoid it.

  4. I am taking medication for my blood pressure but it does not control it very well. Can drinking Hisbuis Tea help bring it down. I am taking four different medications for my blood pressure and it is still not fully stable.

    1. Hibiscus tea has been known to bring down blood pressure, but I’m not a medical doctor so I can’t really advise on what to do. You should talk to your doctor about hibiscus tea before trying it.

    2. I was just wondering I have high blood pressure and I take three different kinds of pills to try and control it but it’s still not being controlled would it be okay to drink more of the hibiscus? I am currently on 200 mg of metoprolol a day and 10 mg of Lisinopril a day as well as lasix 20 mg a day.
      I don’t know why they’re not upping my blood pressure medication but every time I go in my blood pressure is high. It makes me feel really crappy. I get pressure headaches and I feel dizzy so I think it’s still too high for my body so should I start drinking hibiscus everyday and also should I drink four cups?
      Ty,
      Cat

      1. I’m really sorry to hear that 🙁 I’m not a medical professional so I don’t know how it would react with your medications, but you don’t want your blood pressure going too low. I would speak to your doctor first.

      2. Sorry to hear you are having such a bad time trying to find a solution…
        Heres some other things you can try….whilst using Hibiscus
        Olive leaf extract ( Swanson) this is my favourite,
        Raw Garlic (chew one clove twice a day or add to food)
        Beetroot juice
        Do not stop your medication, just use these remedies until you notice improvement then with your doctors help reduce your medication slowly over a peroid of time…best wishes.

      3. Hi Cat. You may be getting “white coat” syndrome when you get your blood pressure checked at the doctors. I get white coat and whenever a doctor takes my BP it goes through the roof. I now take my own BP on arm monitor and it seems to be fine most of the time. Maybe do this and then show the doctor your own readings then you can reduce your meds or come off altogether. I self medicate with magnesium and Co Q 10. I drink hibiscus tea twice a day too. Hope that is helpful and good luck with your BP. Doctors are not always right and just want to get onto the next patient …

      4. Try hibiscus tea, it will do the magic, I used it to control my blood pressure , drink it on empty stomach every morning, and the in the afternoon as a beverage and before you go to bed in the evening. It is advisable you hold on with your BP medication for a while when you are on hibiscus🌺tea. Because there is a likelihood that it might lower your blood pressure it beyond your expectation and cause lower blood pressure, so don’t mix the 2

        1. Hi,

          Yes! Very important NOT to mix hibiscus with blood pressure medication otherwise you risk your blood pressure getting too low.

      5. Dear Cat,

        I’m not a doctor but my Mom’s BP goes high up when she goes to the doctor and otherwise is fine. It could be anxiety or nervousness. The doctor’s office also doesn’t take proper readings depending on who’s taking her BP, some just grab her after walking in to the office (activity)
        instead of resting, calming down, deep breaths…some put the cuff over all her clothing and listen with their ears (human error potential)…my dad bought a digital BP for home, monitor my Mom’s and his BP, her’s is fine at home taken proper but at least they could compare with doctor office readings…now my dad is a retired surgeon but the instructions are in the box. Exercise is important in helping us all…I think we’ve all learned exercise the wrong way in school to where some of us hate exercise. I had one PE teacher in grade school have us play dodge ball only, you bet the boys were trying to hit everyone in the face! It’s tough now. To get back into exercise but there are real health benefits—- one of them is lowering or keep stable our BP, just check with your doctor(s) if doing exercise and maybe which ones are good for you! I stumbled on this article just now, I had heard hibiscus was good for us, someone had made it as a punch recipe, so I got interested in finding out more. Wish you all the very best!

          1. Thank You Meghan,

            I am on that journey now to developing good fitness exercise and right foods in moderation to keeping healthy as I age. Nice to age but I want to do it well. Even walking is probably the best on moving around, gentle fitness, keeping active but the amount of time doing so and how often matters instead of being on the couch or at the office computer for long hours. The activity, if possible outdoors is even healthy for our mental state, but must not be plugged into our phones or we miss our footing and tumble over if you know what I mean. I do want to keep what I have as long as I am able! Many doctors just want to prescribe pills without prescribing the exercise fitness…so I had better not sit still! In middle school, the PE teacher made us run around the parking lot in the heat of the day after lunch, I hated fitness, who wouldn’t right? All I wanted to do was throw up my lunch! Thank You for your article on hibiscus tea, I enjoyed it. I also found out many other foods can also help lower our blood pressure but I think the exercise and right foods in the right balance will help big time! When we were younger, our bodies could take in more and recover quickly. Now we have to get the right balance in everything including sleep to remain healthy as possible! Always good, to treat ourselves and others best as we can!

          2. Hi Gina,

            I couldn’t agree more 😀 I was definitely not the most active kid in gym class – mainly because of the activities they did (hated running laps!) but now I found what works for me and drinking healthy tea and eating right just helps you feel so good that you want to keep it up!

  5. I have started taking hibiscus tea as I have mild BP. I am on medication as well but have started to reduce the medicine doses and keeping track of my readings everyday. I am loving what benefits this ancient herb brings, I m hoping it can help me off the medications in coming months.

      1. I enjoyed reading this article on Hibiscus Tea. I was shopping on the season aisle in the market and saw this tea 🍵. I am an adventurous tea drinker and enjoy 😊 tea drinking in addition to the benefits. I decided to try this one. I am drinking my 1st cup and said let me research Google and your article appeared. After reading article and comments, I like to say a BIG THANK YOU for your time and research on providing this information ℹ️. Have a great day!!!

          1. Hi Rosemary,

            I would avoid hibiscus if you’re trying to conceive as it has been known to induce menstruation (causing a miscarriage).

    1. Wow!!! 10th wonder!! The tea made sleep easily and induced my periods. Thank you for this info. I love the tea!!!!

  6. I am so glad i came across this post. I have been taking hibiscus tea for some days now and was wondering why my period had repeated just after 1 week. Could this be an effect of the hibiscus?

  7. I am on day 2 with the hibiscus tea, take 1 in the morning and 1 before bedtime. I know its soon to tell, but feeling somewhat more energized and have been going more regular to the loo.

    I started taking it since my Dr mentioned my blood pressure being on the upside lately, so before he decides to put me on chronic meds, I decided to start drinking the tea and eating more healthy.

    Will check my blood pressure again in a week or 2 and see the results.

  8. About 3 years ago I was drinking hibiscus daily not knowing the benefits of the tea just liking the taste and sure enough I lost 60 pounds and my blood pressure became normal again and it disolved kidney stones that I had. Its absolutely marvelous. I’m in the 300 club again with my weight so yesterday I started the hibiscus again. I am a diabetic and I like sweets so I sweetened mine with agave but I still lost the weight about a half a pound a day and some days as much as a whole pound daily.

    1. Hi Dinah,

      That’s AMAZING to hear! I’m so happy for you 😀 😀 I love when you enjoy drinking tea that the added side effects become such a nice bonus. I add honey to sweeten mine, I’ll have to try adding agave one day!

  9. I am breastfeeding a baby can i take hibiscus tea I have bp.another question is this, is it good to use dry one a the type they use in making zobo

    1. Hi Ovuoba,

      I would speak to your GP before drinking hibiscus tea, it may have side effects for breastfeeding and I’m not a medical professional to properly advise you on what to do. In terms of Zobo, I believe they use loose leaf dried hibiscus petals and that’s what I use for tea (although I’ve never made or tried zobo before, but it sounds delicious)

  10. good tea , tastes good , perhaps can fight the bacteria and viruses in body(acidic) or floating in air, overall it’s good .

  11. i have jst bought my first hibiscus tea today….i want to try if it will reduce my BP,will get back to you soon
    for how long does it take to be effective[reduce the pressure]

  12. Pingback: march and april 2021: what I'm learning and loving - sara by the season
    1. Of course! If you’re irregular, hibiscus tea is known to induce menstruation so it may help you become more regular. I hope it works for you!

  13. This is the go to tea for Mexicans to prevent UTI s. We call this tea Jamaica like the island. As soon as you feel the symptoms, drink this tea and no more UTIs. No need to boil the Jamaica. Just steep it in water overnight in a glass pitcher in the fridge.

    1. Yay!! That’s awesome! I hope you can enjoy some of the benefits hibiscus tea can offer as well 😀

  14. Thank you for this informative, well researched and well written article on hibiscus. Helped me to understand a lot about it that I was confused about earlier

  15. Your information says not to drink Hisbius tea if your on blood pressure medication, but I’m reading everyone comments saying that this tea is bringing down their blood pressure, so it is okay to drink it if you are taking blood pressure medication?

    1. Hi Cheryl, because Hibiscus tea can lower your blood pressure it becomes risky if you’re already taking medication to lower your blood pressure. You risk it becoming too low. I would speak to your Doctor first before trying hibiscus tea to be safe!

  16. I start drinking the hibiscus last Month, I saw my Dr. last week and foud
    out my BP and Cholesterol lower I was taking for BP Nfedpine and Cholesterol Atorvastatin both med 40 MG tables daily after so many years, She lower the Dosis of both med to 10 MG.
    She told me to continue doing what I was doing soon, I will stop you to taking Med.
    I so glad, and feel better.

  17. thank you so much for this information. i am excited about hisbiscus tea. i just happened to know about its benefits a few days ago. i am diabetic and has high blood pressure. sure enough, my sugar went down from the usual morning gauge of 160 to 130 and i am so happy. i was prescribed with metformin and i don’t want to continue taking it.
    may i ask about the risk it will cause to our liver?

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for reaching out, I’m happy to hear that hibiscus tea is working for you. Just make sure if you are still taking medication that your blood sugar doesn’t get too low while drinking hibiscus tea.

      Right now there haven’t been enough studies to fully describe the full risks of hibiscus tea on our liver, but it is processed there. As with consuming anything, it should always be in moderation.

      Also while taking any medication, always make sure to consult your doctor first!

    2. Hibiscus tea is toxic to the liver in extremely high doses. Toxicity was seen at such high doses, however, that it would probably be difficult to consume that much in tea form.
      Most sources recommend three to four eight-ounce glasses of hibiscus tea daily, which seems like a reasonable amount to avoid adverse effects.
      Dr. Axe website
      Also avoid hibiscus extract in high doses

    1. Hi Gary,

      I haven’t heard of any hormonal risks for men with hibiscus tea through the research I’ve done but I’ll try to look more into it

  18. Really l found hibiscus tea a companion and after reading this piece has made me love it all.Many thanks for your in depth explanation on the wonderful tea.

      1. Hi, I’m drinking a hibiscus tea which is 40% and has other berries in it. Recently found out my blood pressure is high and was wondering if just taking 40% hibiscus in a tea will help?

        1. Hi Sally,

          Of course, I can’t say for sure but it may help a bit. If you want more of the effects of hibiscus tea, I would say the more hibiscus the more it will effect you.

  19. My mum got me some of the raw flowers for my birthday. I am now officially obsessed with this tea…3 cups a day with a tiny bit of agave syrup (1/2 teaspoon)
    I’ve also made a chocolate and hibiscus cake. It’s lush… going to do my BP soon and hopefully it’s come down too..great blog (Nottingham, ENGLAND)

    1. Hi Paula!

      Thanks so much 😀 So happy to hear that you’re loving hibiscus tea I hope it’s helped your BP. Also I may need that recipe, sounds DELICIOUS!!!

  20. Hello! I discovered it in May2021 but didn’t know much of its benefits & risks thus taking it 2x a week only.
    I believe I could drink now more often, at least 1 cup a day.
    Thanks for sharing these things about hibiscus.

  21. I drank hibiscus and rose hip tea and a glass of wine . The wine was 15 % alcohol and seet. Sipping back and forth between them.
    Suddenly I didn’t feel very well. And my heart felt top heavy in the upper right area. That’s the bestway I can explain the feeling . I immediately drank a bunch of water and the feeling disapaited shortly after. After looking it up reading this article now I see what I did wrong. Obviously not to be consumed together.

    1. Oh no! I guess both hibiscus and alcohol are processed in our liver so the combination of both may lead to that. Glad you’re doing alright and acted quickly!

  22. My daughter gets horrible UTI’s at moments notice. I use this tea to treat UTI’s. It clears up the infection and symptoms within 24 hours every time.

    1. Hi Melissa,

      That’s incredible! So glad to hear a success story for one of the benefits of Hibiscus tea! Thanks for sharing 😀

  23. You are a wonderful writer, thanks for sharing this article on Hibiscus, I loved reading every part of it!

  24. I have been off the high blood pressure medication since I have started drinking the hibiscus tea last year. I have discovered it’s benefits by chance since I was just drinking a detox tea which had the hibiscus. I was starting to get dizzy at times and I realized that my blood pressure was getting low during the periods when I was drinking the hibiscus tea. I have shared this with my doctor and she supported me on not taking the high blood pressure medication anymore. The taste is great too 🙂

  25. Thanks for sharing this cos today I dreamt about this product,and I decided to Google.Am diabetic and hypertensive.I think this is what God wanted me to use.I have just bought it, hoping to give my testimony soon.

    1. Hi Priscah,

      Make sure to speak to your doctor as well if you’re already on medication – remember hibiscus can interact with it. Hope it works 😀 😀

  26. Surely it delays conception. I took it when I had to start ovulating. The mucus stopped and became so dry, so fast.

  27. It is called Zobo drink in Nigeria, and best taking when prepared with ginger, pineapple and cloves. A great drink for everyday, i must say.
