Native Australian Anise Myrtle has a pleasantly fresh, warm and aromatic spicy flavour. The name comes from the strong aniseed scented and flavoured leaves. Made from the crushed leaves of Anise Myrtle it has a subtle sweet liquorice flavour.
The leaves are often used for flavouring desserts, sweet sauces and preserves. It also is popular as a scented savoury sauce or marinade for meats and sets a deep fragrant flavour to salad dressings.
