Hibiscus is a tropical, flowering plant that is original to Asia, Africa and some parts of Europe. The plant is widely cultivated as a garden specimen because of its spectacular, deep red flowers. The flowers are also used in cooking and to produce teas and other beverages.
Elsewhere, Hibiscus flowers are used to make chilled beverages. In Mexico, for example, the flowers are typically blended with fruit or juice and served cold as aguas frescas. In the Caribbean, water flavored with tea made from the flowers and served chilled is known as agua de Flor de Jamaica.
