Hibiscus is a genus of several hundred species in the mallow family that are native to tropical regions throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. This species is commonly called roselle in many parts of the world, but is also known as sorrel in the Caribbean and as Flor de Jamaica in Mexico.

The large, showy blooms are a vibrant color on the stem and retain their color when dried. Alone or in combination with other dried herbs, flowers and spices, hibiscus flowers make colorful and flavorful teas.

Hibiscus sabdariffa is a member of the mallow family that is native to Africa, where it is sometimes called carcade. Known for its large, colorful blooms, the plant is cultivated elsewhere as an ornamental. Depending on location, the plant may be an annual or perennial.

The vibrantly colored blossoms are enjoyed in many parts of the world in tea blends. Throughout the Caribbean, where Hibiscus is commonly referred to as sorrel, the flowers are used to produce a syrup that is used to make alcoholic concoctions involving rum and various warm seasonings such as cinnamon, cloves or bay leaf.
