Is it Safe, the Hibiscus edition

I found a large bag of dried hibiscus while cleaning out the back of my pantry... and it must be around four or even five years old. Any problem using it?

It's just plain dried hibiscus, something like this
, in a similar plastic bag – except it was closed with a twist tie, and came originally from a vendor, not a commercial company. I threw out a ton of other old stuff, but I'd rather not toss this if it's okay. Is it okay? (No critters were found in the examination of this suspect item.)
