Hibiscus is the state flower of Hawaii and the natives of the islands refer to it as “Pua Aloalo” or “Ma'o Hau Hele”. The flower is a symbol of old Hawaiian royalty and is presented on leis to visiting dignitaries. There are more than 200 known species of hibiscus. Every herb and flower has a symbolic meaning and Hibiscus means beauty and grace. Native to Africa, Hibiscus is closely related to a bushy ornamental shrub that decorates many tropical gardens and has become a popular flamboyant houseplant in Europe and the U.S.
This large, tasty flower makes a tisane (or herbal tea) that is consumed both hot and cold in many regions of the world. Hibiscus tea is commonly referred by some as “roselle”. In Brazil and India it is called “Gongura”, in Egypt and Sudan as “Karkade”, in Mexico, Central and South America as “flor de Jamaica” and in West Africa as “Bissap”.
Hibiscus petals can be used by themselves or used as a herbal tea base and blended with various herb and fruit infusions. Hibiscus is popular with independent tea shops that like to create their own signature tea blends and they’re frequently paired with rosehips and various dried fruits. We do not recommend that you use milk with a hibiscus tea as it will curdle the milk. Some herbal tea lovers prefer this with sugar.
Hisbiscus powder is great for adding flavor and color to jellies, marmalades, ice creams, sherbets, butters, lemonades and sangrias.
