Hibiscus is a flowering plant that originates in Africa and can be found in tropical and subtropical areas around the world. It belongs to the Malvaceae family.
While this plant doesn’t have a strong scent, it has a sweet, fruity flavour with some sour notes.
This amazing plant is surrounded by ancient tales and folklore. It is very important in Hindu mythology. Here Hibiscus is associated with the goddess Kali. This plant is also part of Polynesian culture, in which a myth links the birth of red Hibiscus to the red face of a man.
We also find mentions of Hibiscus in Chinese folklore. It is said that a Chinese King ordered that the walls around the city of Chengdu should be covered with Hibiscus flowers.
From this moment Chengdu’s second name became “the city of Hibiscus flowers”.
