STORY:  It is believed that the first instance of the mixing of dried hibiscus petals and pomegranate took place in the harbor of Hanga Roa, the capital of Rapa Nui, otherwise known as Easter Island. Polynesian migrants, after traveling vast swathes of the Pacific in large canoes, are believed to have landed on the island some time around 400 CE, bringing many of their customs and cultural artifacts with them. Ocean legend has it that among other things, hibiscus flowers made the trip. For centuries the islanders lived in peace and harmony, erecting the giant statues for which the island is famous. As they did, the beautiful, highly fragrant flowers, flourished along with the island's population. While native species of fruit were plentiful, it would not be centuries later that pomegranates would make their appearance.
