Roselle is a species of the Hibiscus family, well known for its bright red colour, fleshy calyces and sour flavour. This versatile flower is commonly used all over the world. In Chinese culture, it is served as a herbal tea. The roselle flower has plenty of nutrients packed within its fleshy calyces, such as vitamin C, calcium, iron, niacin and riboflavin. It is also a source of antioxidants, anthocyanins which act as free radical scavengers and inhibit lipid per-oxidation. Studies also showed that Roselle flower is able to lower blood pressure and blood lipids. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the roselle plant is categorised as cooling in nature and sour in taste. Its TCM properties include clearing excess heat, replenishing fluids, quenching thirst and improving digestion. It is particularly useful during hot seasons, for people with excess heat that causes dry throat and mouth.
