Flower Power Tea

This gorgeous, ruby-red iced tea features the medicinal benefits of two powerful flowers: hibiscus, naturally rich in iron and vitamin C, and cannabis, a traditional balm for body, mind and soul.

Hibiscus tea is popular in Mexico, where it goes by the name aqua de jamaica, a naturally tart and refreshing summer sipper. Although it can be made with hot water for a faster brew, we prefer the flavour when it’s cold-brewed overnight.
