Hibiscus, also known as rosemallow, is a flowering plant belonging to the same family as cocoa and cotton. Native to warm climates, hibiscus is just one of several species in the Malvaceae family.
Hibiscus flowers are caffeine free, making them ideal for herbal tea blends. When the flowers are dried out and soaked in hot water, they deliver a tart flavor with a hint of cranberry. Hibiscus flowers can also enhance the taste of green and black teas with their robust flavor. These flowers are tart and colorful, which makes them a nice addition to any cuisine. Hibiscus flowers can also be used in cosmetics and as a dye.
