Hibiscus sabdariffa is a tropical flowering plant in the mallow family. In fact, it is commonly referred to as rose mallow. This species is native to west Africa, where it is known as carcade. However, because it is widely cultivated and used as food in so many parts of the world, the plant is also known by many other names, most notably as roselle, sorrel and Flor de Jamaica.

The vibrantly colored flowers add color to teas, soft drinks and other beverages. For example, in Africa the dried calyx is made into Sudan Tea, and in the Caribbean sorrel tea is combined with beer to produce a popular beverage called Shandy Sorrel.

The dried flowers are also used in cooking. In Australia, Burma, Nigeria and Trinidad, the whole buds are made into jam or jelly. In the Philippines, hibiscus is an ingredient in Polynesian Chicken Stew. In India, hibiscus is used to flavor soups and chicken and fish.
