Here at Mama Tea, we take our herbs very seriously. We love the herb Hibiscus, which is a showy flowering plant, that is eaten dried as a delicacy in Mexico and has a long tradition in herbal infusions.

Hibiscus in Mama Tea

We have blended hibiscus into our Ready Mama tea, which is our fruity raspberry leaf and hibiscus birth preparation herbal tea. We included it in our birth preparation tea because it can help with uterine contractions, however it is also a great herb for period pain for the same reason.

Hibiscus comes from the Greek word for marshmallow and is also known as rose mallow.

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, an old species that was grown as an ornamental flower in China, is believed to have been cultivated there for thousands of years. Although it appears to have been in cultivation throughout much of the Asian continent, early reports of hibiscus rosa-sinensis flowering around temples in China imply a Chinese origin, hence the name “sinensis”.
