March 19, 2012 - PRLog -- RateTea, an online community where anyone can rate and review teas and herbal teas, and a website with a detailed database of different teas and herbal teas classified by style or type, has recently scoured the internet to locate as many commercial sources of hibiscus tea (sepals of the Hibiscus sabdariffa plant), including both the bulk herb, and tea bags.

RateTea's listings now go far beyond typical Google search results:

When searching for Hibiscus tea, as is the case with many herbs used to brew herbal teas, search results are polluted by a large number of websites of low-quality, providing poorly researched informational content, and not truly selling anything (some only using affiliate links).  Furthermore, the commercial sites returned in searches include both companies with their own brand of hibiscus tea, and herb companies selling bulk hibiscus, as well as other commercial sites, including Amazon and many others, which are merely marketplaces or stores that resell hibiscus provided by other sellers.

In addition, many companies do not distinguish from pure hibiscus tea and blends of primarily hibiscus with other herbs and/or other ingredients or flavorings.

RateTea collects all original retail sources with their own brand (selling direct to the customer, wholesalers are not included) of pure hibiscus tea into their page on hibiscus.  The listings include both tea bags, bulk loose whole flowers, and bulk cut and sifted hibiscus.  Two of the listings, from Rishi Tea and Shanti Tea, are fair-trade certified.  Nine of the listings are certified organic.  Blends including hibiscus among other ingredients are relegated to the more general category of herbal teas.

The page for hibiscus tea on RateTea not only includes listings of different sources of the herb, and classifies them by region of origin (including Egypt, Nigeria, and Sudan), but also has an extensive article providing background on hibiscus and the drink brewed from it, citing scientific studies establishing its effectiveness for treating hypertension (high blood pressure), a traditional use which has been validated by controlled clinical trials.
