Hibiscus, scientifically known as Hibiscus sabdariffa, is a flowering plant that belongs to the Malvaceae family. It is native to tropical regions and is widely cultivated for its attractive flowers and its edible calyces, which are used to make a tangy herbal tea known as hibiscus tea or roselle tea. Hibiscus plants can grow as small shrubs or as larger, tree-like specimens, depending on the variety. The flowers are typically large, colorful, and trumpet-shaped, with shades of red, pink, yellow, or white. The calyces, which are the fleshy, protective structures that surround the seed pod, are the part of the plant used for culinary and medicinal purposes. It is rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins, and is believed to have numerous health benefits. Hibiscus is often consumed for its potential to support cardiovascular health, regulate blood pressure, and promote digestion. It is also known for its cooling properties and is a popular beverage choice in hot climates. In addition to its culinary use, hibiscus flowers are sometimes used in traditional herbal medicine for their potential diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties. They may also be used topically for skin conditions.
