Roselle is an herb that is very special to supersfarm because it tastes like home to Super, who lived in Trinidad with his grandparents until the age of ten. Roselle is the main ingredient in the popular drink, Sorrel, which fully embodies the taste of The Caribbean.
Roselle is a tropical annual that goes by many, many names. It is known as the Florida Cranberry, Guinea Sorrel, Hibiscus, Indian Sorrel, Isakpa, Jamaican Sorrel, Jamaica tea flower, Java Jute, Jelly Okra, Karkadé, Krachiap Daeng, Natal Sorrel, Nubia tea, Pink Lemonade, Queensland Jelly Plant, Red Sorrel, Red Tea, Rosella, Roselle, Royal Roselle, Rozelle, Rozelle Hemp, Sorrel, Sour Tea, and Sour-Sour. I said many names!
Roselle has many health benefits, such as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antidepressant. Honestly, how can you drink something so beautiful, and not feel joy?
All parts of the roselle have uses. Such as the leaves, which taste great in a salad, or can be dried for a tea. Whichever way you go, be sure to take some roselle with you.
