We provide high-quality Tanzania hibiscus to the local and export markets. We source the fresh raw cut Tanzania hibiscus from family growers in Tanzania.
Tanzania hibiscus is a flowering plant from the mallow family with showy pistils atop the flowers. The blooms themselves are quite attractive in a light red and pink look. They harbor calyces which are mostly the fleshy parts within the buds, and these are the primary sources of herbal tea. The plant does well in the tropics as well as the Mediterranean where the climate is mildly warm. It is a common sight at fences courtesy of its standing out head that proudly shows off in landscaped grounds. Whether from the aroma or just pollen, the hibiscus is a magnet for birds and nectar-seeking bees.
One of the most famous places where hibiscus was in use as the herbal remedy in the ancient times was Egypt. The locals made use of the flowers to cure heart and nervous system illnesses. The best-known use, however, is the brewing of herbal tea. The crushed-flower solution not only enriches tea but acts as folk medicine against indigestion, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Regarding other uses, some varieties serve as ingredients for producing writing paper.
We source Tanzania hibiscus from family growers in the Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro areas. Here, farmers grow the flower in patches of land of less than 2 acres. They maintain the fields by the use of farmyard manure. They also reduce reliance on chemical sprays on keeping the fresh aroma and healthy color of the blooms.
We pick Tanzania hibiscus by cutting the long branches in the same manner as pruning. Each branch can measure at least 100 centimeters. We prune the foliage and leave out only the flower head at the top. We cart away the produce during the cool morning hours to the packinghouse.
We pack Tanzania hibiscus in two forms either as fresh or dried calyces. In the former context, we pack the entire fresh cut flower with its calyce intact. We use 1-meter long boxes to contain the long stems. The boxes are usually in the form of flat, horizontal fiberboard cartons.
For the dried calyces of Tanzania hibiscus, our packing routine is similar to that of the cut flowers only that the fiberboard boxes are of standard size. We pack the red stuff in 25-kilo packing boxes. These keep the dried calyces in a better form than we collect them when they are fallen. By now the flowers have no more than 5 percent of their original moisture levels. We finally insert the labels indicating the date of packing, the country of origin, the net weight and the nature of the produce (fresh or dried).
We store Tanzania hibiscus in the temperature range of 0 degrees Celsius. We reserve the cut blooms in the hermetic travel cartons to keep them fresh and of vibrant color. The cool temperature also keeps the calyces aromatic as herbal tea. We also maintain this same temperature during the transportation to the airport in Dar-es-Salaam. We deliver the flowers courtesy of our special delivery vans that come with a modified interior environment.
In short, if you are in immediate need of Tanzania hibiscus, do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We source the produce from family growers who have attained Global Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) certifications. We keep the sufficient tonnage levels by giving our sources a mandate to grow surplus in season. On top of that, we offer special prices that are quite affordable. Make an order today!
