Peppermint Gum – An ancient Australian bush herb used by Australia’s first people for a millennia to add flavour into food and drinks. A bush food from the eucalyptus family used in a tea brew to treat fevers, calm the digestive system and enhance liver function. Our Aboriginals used to use it to flavour meat, add into drinks and even chew it like chewing gum.
It has a fresh eucalyptus mint aroma and taste. Its an excellent addition into any tea where you want to freshen up the flavour. Just adding a tiny pinch of leaves to any tea brew, will add levels of flavour and complexity to simple green, black and herbal teas. Our tea maker is particularly fond of this product.
For food, its nice as a rub on fish plus a wonderful addition in salad dressings.
