Hello all, I was just wondering...
Can ALL hibiscus flowers be used for Hibsicus tea?
or are there preferred kinds?
Thank you for your responses!
I was wondering that too. I have several types of hibiscus, don't know what type, but would like to know. Anyone?
Yeah, anyone? Just bumping up the thread. We haven't gotten any responses yet, SharBear!
And to add to that... how do you process the flowers? Just dry them? They don't form hips, right? like Rose hips?
Here's what wikipedia has to say about hibiscus tea

i have eaten tropical hibiscus so don't see why it could not be used in a tea. the most common tea is from the roselle. the only one i know not to eat is the turks cap. i have also made tea with the leaves of the red sheild /cranberry hibiscus
the tropical hibiscus flowers is what to eat. the leaves are not very good. but the name cranberry hibiscus is also sometimes used for roselle the flower calyces are used in the tea the false roselle also has a cranberry flavor to the leaves as well as the leaves of the red sheild hibiscus
Where can I buy seedlings or cuttings of Roselle?
