Native to warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions, the hibiscus is a flowering plant from the mallow family, Malvaceae. Hibiscus is high in antioxidants and flavonoids and has cooling properties. Cultures throughout history have enjoyed hibiscus tea, from the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt to many countries in Central America and the Caribbean. In Hawaiian culture, a single Hibiscus flower is usually worn by women and depending on which ear it is worn behind, it signals whether or not she is available for marriage.
Perfect Purée of Napa Valley Sweet Hibiscus has slightly sweet and tart, lemon-berry notes that will be a favorite for chefs and bartenders alike. Created from the extract of the edible hibiscus flower, the floral aromatics of this flavor will inspire tropical creations from beverage to sorbet.
