Agua de Jamaica (Pronounced Ha-Mai-Kah), as it is known around California and the American Southwest, is also well-known in most of the world.
In theenglishspeaking regions of the world, it is known asRoselle,or Hibiscus Tea. In most of Europe, North Africa, Central Asia, and the Middle East, it is known as Karkade. In Jamaica and the Carribean, as Sorrel. Almost every region in the world has their own name for this traditional drink. The drink is made by steeping the calyces of the Hibiscus Roselle flower with a blend of spices. There are as many variations on the recipe as there are people to invent them, but over the course of the past year, we have been developing what we believe to be the finest recipe available.
