Pepperleaf Mountain Ground




Warm peppery notes combined with a delicate, eucalypt-like flavour.

Other Common Names

Australian Native Pepperleaf, Mountain Pepperleaf, Tasmanian Pepper. Botanical Name: (Tasmannia lanceolata)

Description & Use

Both the berries and leaves are used from this Australian Native shrub. Pepperberries are dark-blue to black in colour and have an intensely strong pepper bite that is accompanied by a mineral-like aftertaste that lingers and builds in heat over a period of about 5 minutes after consumption. Use with care, about one tenth the amount one would use of conventional pepper.

This ground pepperleaf is far milder than the berries and gives a pleasant, Australian outback taste to food when used as a substitute for normal pepper. Sprinkle onto chicken and fish with ground Lemon Myrtle leaf and a little salt.

Product of Australia.
