Jamaica water is a delicious drink -hot or cold! It's packed full of vitamins and minerals and has loads of health benefits that have actually been proven!

It has many names around the world: Roselle or rosella in Australia, agua de Jamaica / flor de Jamaica in Latin America, Arhul ka phool in India, karkadé in Levant, Egypt, Sudan, Italy and Russia, Chai Kujarat in Iraq, Chai Torsh in Iran, gumamela in the Philippines, bissap, tsoborodo or wonjo in West Africa, sorrel in Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago, red sorrel in the wider Caribbean, and other names in other regions, including the U.S., where it is sometimes simply called Jamaica.

Jamaica Water is drunk as an agua fresca in Latin America alongside other delicious blends such as Tamarind and Horchata. Agua frescas (Spanish for 'cold waters') are combinations of fruits, cereals, flowers, or seeds blended with sugar and water to make light non-alcoholic beverages. They are a great alternative to fizzy drinks, squash and fruit juices and also make an excellent cocktail if you're so inclined!
