Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) also known as carcade (karkade), Jamaican Flower, is a minor cash crop in Sudan considered as a natural herbal product, traditionally consumed as a flavored drink. It has tart, cranberry-like flavour, and sugar is often added to sweeten it.
Hibiscus tea was a beverage of choice for Egyptian pharaohs in ancient Egypt. IN fcat, many cultures, including those in the Caribbean, Mexico, China, Africa and Europe, cultivated and used hibiscus tea, not just for its flavor but for its medicinal properties.
It is the fourth most valuable export crop after sesame, cotton and gum Arabic. Hibiscus farming is concentrated in Kordofan, and on a lesser scale in Darfur and Blue Nile.
The flower is 100% organic grown in Sudan, and also the world’s best Roselle comes from the Sudan.
