Jamaican sorrel is in fact what many know as hibiscus blossoms, which can be found dried online and at Latin American or natural food stores, where they are sometimes also called flor de jamaica. The blossoms are traditionally steeped in hot or cold water to make a refreshing herbal and therefore caffeine-free, tea. The tea has a beautiful ruby color and tart, tangy flavor that is a little like cranberry or pomegranate. Come the holidays, this tea is stirred up with fragrant spices like ginger and cloves, along with a bit of simple syrup and Jamaican rum for a festive holiday punch that both looks and tastes of the season. Sorrel also provides a significant amount of fiber, very few calories, almost no fat, and a small amount of protein. In terms of vitamins, it is rich in vitamin C and also contains vitamin A, vitamin B-6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. In terms of beneficial organic compounds, it contains polyphenolic acids, flavonoids, and anthocyanins.
