Historically, the plant originated between India and Malaysia, but it was gradually shipped to Africa. The shrub is also very popular in Southeastern Asia and Northeastern India. It is widely known as Roselle Calyces all over the world and popularly consumed as ‘hibiscus tea’. Roselle is known as "Jajew" in Khasi. It is indigenous to the Ri-Bhoi distict of Meghalaya. It has a taste that is similar to that of cranberries which is why people in America call it Florida cranberry.
