Sorrel or Dried Hibiscus Flowers
Hibiscus flowers can be used to make teas, but my favorite way to use them is to make Trinidadian Sorrel – a sweet West Indian beverage that is usually made at Christmastime. It makes an intense drink on ice, but is also very nice mixed with soda water or kicked up with a shot of rum.
- HIBISCUS – Hibiscuses are shrubs and small trees that produce beautiful, colorful trumpet-shaped flowers. Native to warm climates, they are just one of several species in the Malvaceae family. The plant has virtually no fragrance (some offer a minimal scent). Some common names include wax mallow, mazapan, Turk’s cap mallow, and sleeping hibiscus.
- A VERSATILE INGREDIENT – Hibiscus cut and sifted flowers are caffeine-free, making them ideal for herbal tea blends. Or mix them with green tea for a soothing, refreshing flavor and aroma. They are tart and colorful, which makes them a nice addition to any cuisine. Hibiscus cut and sifted flowers have also been used in cosmetics and as a dye.
- FLAVORFUL AND ROBUST – When the cut and sifted flowers are dried out and soaked in hot water, they deliver a tart flavor with a hint of cranberry-like flavor. Hibiscus flowers enhance the taste of green and black teas with their flavor. Mix them with peppermint, linden leaves or spearmint to add robust, intense flavor to beverages.
