Spices used in this recipe
Australian Native Rivermint
Australian Native Mint, also known as ‘Wild Mint’, is a smaller, more delicate version of the more well-known garden-variety mint. This native herb is as versatile as it is aromatic; Indigenous Australians have used this marvellous herb for centuries as flavoursome bush food, natural insect repellant and medicinal herb. After harvesting the leaves, we have dried them to lock in the flavour and aroma; the snap-lock seal on our barrier-proof packets also ensures it retains its flavour for many uses to come. A true taste of the Australian bush!$4.99
Australian Native – Wild Thyme
Australian Native Thyme is a national herb that’s origins date back centuries. It was previously used medicinally by Indigenous Australian’s however is now more-commonly used in cooking and the making of herbal teas. It’s a highly aromatic herb that’s rich in essential oils that give off a minty aroma when released. Our leaves have been freshly harvested then dried immediately to lock in their vibrant flavour and aroma. This is a true taste of the Australian bush and an excellent edition to our Natives collection.$4.99

White Kunzea is a fragrant tiny leaf with hints of eucalyptus and citrus. Kunzea comes from Tasmania’s beautiful East Coast and makes a wonderfully aromatic tea when brewed. It grows wild and abundant in Freycinet and towards the northeast. White Kunzea pairs well with native pepper berry and wattleseed.$4.99
