What is this called??

Mom used some of these flowers (which are riped, those shown in this picture are not riped) to boil this red drink - it tastes like Ribena.

I remember when I was younger, mom also used something like this which is dried to boil. But until now, I still have no idea what this plant is called.

KZ said she's seen this alot in Myanmar. And that it grows abundantly. She plucked the leaf and ate it. I tried and it's sour.
