    Has anyone ever tried dried hibiscus flowers? It's sweet just like a fruit. Trader Joe's sells them. A health benefit is that it lowers blood pressure. I've found a new tasty, healthy snack, mmm!

    Hibiscus flowers?? Here, that's about as common as flying birds!! I've never heard of edible hibiscus!; we don't have a Trader Joe's around here. Wonder where else you can get them.

    I don't where else has them, look it up on the net. As we know, many flowers are edible. :)

    Pete's Coffee has a Hibiscus tea. I thought it would be nice and fruity, and but I didn't care for it. I wonder if I would like the petals?

    I've made the Hibiscus iced tea; it's delicious. Never thought about the flower being edible. Sounds interesting; I would definitely pick up a bag if I can find a place to purchase one.
