I have never been to Jamaica, but sometimes you have to go to Nicaragua to experience Jamaica.

This tea, served, cold or hot, is made from flower pedals of the hibiscus. It is a deep magenta color and tastes a bit like grapes or wine without the alcohol. It is also called sorrel, and is served often on holidays to guests in Africa as well as Jamaica.

Drinking flower pedals is an epicurean exercise that wealthy Roman Senators would have had down pat.

When a commoner can sit down and enjoy Jamaica Tea, at a Cafe in Granada, Nicaragua, you know the world has gotten a whole lot more even.
