I've always been fascinated and enthralled by Hibiscus blooms and the roselle flowers growing in my garden have finally sprouted.
Roselle or its scientific name Hibiscus sabdariffa are common wild-grown flowers now widely distributed and cultivated in tropical regions round the globe. Sepals of roselle are used in making juices, squashes, jellies, wines and pies. The juice contains vitamin C and minerals and many parts of the plant are also claimed to have various medicinal properties. More specifically, they are commonly used as a treatment for cardiac, nerve diseases and cancer.
With its numerous health benefits, this is definitely a home comfort that brings me back into my early years. The beverage is similar to Ribena juice, but not as sour though. It makes a fabulous iced tea that never fails to leave me feeling refreshed and uplifted.
