Hibiscus aka Sorrel aka Roselle (scientific name ‘Hibiscus Sabdariffa’) is a species of the Hibiscus family. This very popular plant is widely grown in the Caribbean region, and is enjoyed throughout the year especially around the Christmas period. Hibiscus has its origins in West Africa and in Nigeria, the hibiscus drink is called ‘Zobo’. Hibiscus has antibacterial properties, has been shown to help reduce blood pressure and help with weight loss.

It is most popular in northern Nigeria but has spread across the rest of the country. For example, in the French speaking parts of West Africa, the hibiscus drink is known as ‘Bissap’ and in the Caribbean, it is known as ‘Sorrel’. Ancient Egyptians used the tea to treat nerve and heart diseases to reduce body temperature and as a diuretic to increase urine production.
