The raspberry plant is a biennial bush, the berries of which should not be missing on any fruit plate. But not just the berries are worth harvesting: The green leaves of the raspberry bush have also been used since time immemorial to prepare hot beverages. Raspberry leaves taste slightly tart and delicately bitter.
Lemon verbena was first introduced to Europe at the end of the 18th century. Its homeland is under the South American sun. The lemon verbena belongs to the vervain family and contains fine essential oils.
We can smell it everywhere around the Mediterranean: the tantalising fragrance of lavender. The plant of the mint family is native to these areas, even if it is now cultivated throughout the world because of its beautiful flowers. Lavender tastes tart-spicy and slightly bitter. It contains valuable essential oils.
Liquorice has already been known since ancient times. Its sweetening power is about 50 times stronger than that of sugar. It tastes mild-sweetish and bitter-tart.
Cinnamon is among the most expensive spices in the world and was supposedly already used as a spice in China in 3,000 B.C. Cinnamon is extracted from the bark of the South-Asian cinnamon tree. It has an aromatic-sweetish taste and contains valuable essential oils.
Bees love its nectar-rich fruit, and human beings appreciate the spicy-fresh, lemony taste of its leaves. In the Middle Ages, lemon balm was so highly valued that it had to be cultivated in every European monastery garden per decree.
Whether in the Christmas biscuits, as a curry mixture or in lemonade: The bulbous ginger is among the best-known spice plants in the world. For thousands of years, it has been cultivated in the tropical heat of eastern Asia. It gives many of our YOGI TEA®s a fruity-hot and aromatically spicy taste.
Thyme is a plant of the mint family that has been valued by human beings for thousands of years as a spice. It grows mainly around the Mediterranean and has a powerful-hearty, slightly tart aroma.
Its full, slightly bitter-sharp aroma has made oregano an elemental component of Mediterranean cuisine. Found throughout all of Central Europe, as well as in North America and the Middle East, oregano is very widespread as a popular spice plant.
Cardamom has been one of the most popular spices for thousands of years throughout the entire Asian and Arabian area. Its subtle, sweetish-spicy aroma predestines cardamom for use in many different foods ranging from sharp curries to spicy Christmas biscuits.
Also called the "king of spices," black pepper is one of the world's most important spices in addition to salt. It originally came from the Indian Malabar Coast and tastes intensive-spicy, ranging from slightly spicy to quite spicy.
Cloves are the flower buds of the clove tree and primarily familiar as a spice for both sweet and salty food in the European part of the world. They belong to the myrtle family and have an intensive spicy aroma. They were even worth their weight in gold in both old China and Egypt.
