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.
A native of India, the peel of the lemon tree fruit has an aroma similar to its sourish fruit pulp. Slightly bitter and refreshingly fruity, it enriches Mediterranean meals, sweet dishes or herbal tea mixtures.
First discovered in 1696 and presumably created through the coincidental hybridisation of the water mint and wild mint, peppermint is now one of the most familiar plants in the world. Peppermint is extremely popular throughout the world due to its refreshing aroma. It has a mild, pleasant pungency.
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.
Lemon grass contains essential oils and has a strong, lemony-fresh taste. The origins of this plant from the family of grasses that is primarily used in the Asian kitchen are still unclear to this day.
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.
Hibiscus, which is sometimes given other names such as the rose mallow, originally came from the tropics. In addition to its beauty, it is now also valued for its pleasantly fruity, sweet-sourish tasting flowers. Thanks to its conspicuously large flowers, it can now be found in many European gardens.
Dried lemon juice
To this today, it is still not clear where the lemon - a member of the citrus family - actually came from. It is presumed that its origins were in northern India. But due to its refreshing-sour taste, it has already been widespread around the world for thousands of years.
