Tasmanian Pepper Leaf

$10.00$76.00

Tasmanian pepper leaf is a versatile and uniquely flavourful herb that is every bit as spicy as the berry! It is fantastic in baking – bread, muffins or cookies.  As for the berry the spicy component will be mellowed out with longer cooking times.  Other uses might include and casseroles.

The aroma is pure Tassie bush itself! Fresh, herbal, crisp, slightly sweet menthol with a hint of vanilla that will have you reminiscing about those great hiking trips in the Tasmanian wilderness.

Harvesting Tasmanian Pepper

Most of our pepper leaves are sourced from a property that we manage in the Midlands.  Often we collect leaf in conjunction with pruning of older trees plants to reduce height or to stimulate new growth.  Other trees dedicated to leaf production are shaped or hedged to facilitate easy cutting.
