The cocoa tree, which originally came from the Latin American rainforest, is primarily famous for its beans – the basic raw material of chocolate. But the shells of the cocoa bean fruit are also bursting with a sweetish-soft aroma and contain much fewer calories.
Cinnamon is among the most expensive spices in the world and was supposedly already used as a spice in China in 3,000 B.C. Cinnamon is extracted from the bark of the South-Asian cinnamon tree. It has an aromatic-sweetish taste and contains valuable essential oils.
Hibiscus, which is sometimes given other names such as the rose mallow, originally came from the tropics. In addition to its beauty, it is now also valued for its pleasantly fruity, sweet-sourish tasting flowers. Thanks to its conspicuously large flowers, it can now be found in many European gardens.
