    Yep..that looks like what it is. I love the drink brewed from these. It is called Jamaica (J pronounced as H) I have the recipe to make this drink if you would like to have it.

    Just tonight on Chopped they had to use this flower to cook with!

    I used to make the drink when I lived in Grenada. They drink it at Christmas and I think you can put some rum into it.
