3 Tins of Pure Herbs - Gift Pack

Do you have any foodie family or friends that live overseas ? Our very cute Gift Box of native herbs makes an ideal Christmas gift to post to people in places far away as it is small and light - in addition to being quite special of course!


A perfect gift - three great Australian pure native herbs sealed and  packed into cute little tins and then popped into an acetate gift box embossed with the concentric circles that mean 'meeting place' -a place where native food knowledge meets traditional western cooking . 

Provenance
Lemon Myrtle - Bakhousia citriadora 
If we had to chose a tree that encompasses all the advantages of planting, growing, harvesting, cooking and enjoying native foods it would have to be the Lemon Myrtle.
A magnificent subtropical rainforest plant in its own right, is also a beautiful specimen tree- bushy with low branches that have long tapering, deep green leaves and small bunches of clusters of tiny white, fluffy flowers in late summer and autumn. However, the most marvellous feature of this tree is its superb fragrance which is a blend of lemon, lemongrass and lemon verbena. Its a joy to have in the garden and just brushing past the tree will release its scent, and it's especially fragrant after rain. In it's native subtropical habitat it can grow up to 20 metres but is a smaller tree the cooler the environment becomes, usually topping out at about 6 metres
Anisata - Anetholea anisata  
Anisata is a coastal rainforest tree of subtropical eastern Australia. These days it's rare to find it in the wild, and the ones left in their natural environment must not be foraged. Fortunately for those of us who love to cook with this aromatic herb, there are significant plantations of Anisata in this region, particularly in the area around Lismore.
Brush past an Anisata tree and an intriguing aniseed aroma will envelop you. The leaves are rich in the essential oils anethole and citral: anethole is an aromatic compound that gives the leaves their aniseed flavour, and the citral provides a slight lemon and eucalypt finish.
Mountain Pepper - Tasmannia lanceolata
The native pepper trees or shrubs that we use for culinary purposes are from the Tasmannia  genus of the Winteraceae family. This family of plants is one of a group associated with the ancient Gondwana Supercontinent that Australia was once part of, and is now represented in various species that we call native peppers. The one that we use is Mountain Pepper or Tasmannia lanceolata. We are always blown away understanding how truly ancient our native foods are and how they have survived through the ages in pristine wilderness areas and are now grown commercially - it is amazing to think about Gondwana then and Australia now.
Mountain Pepper is not related to the true pepper , which is actually an Indonesian vine. It certainly has the spiciness and heat of pepper, and also a significant aromatic flavour

This starter Pure Native Herb Collection is the perfect introduction to the flavours of Australia  - three of our most popular Australian Pure Native Herbs sealed and  packed into cute little tins and then popped into an acetate gift box embossed with the concentric circles that mean 'meeting place' -a place where traditional Indigenous native food knowledge meets your pantry!
