Chili peppers are annual plants of the nightshade family that primarily thrive in sunny countries such as Mexico, India, Thailand and Tanzania. Their natural pungency has made them one of the most popular spice plants in the world.
The cocoa tree, which originally came from the Latin American rainforest, is primarily famous for its beans – the basic raw material of chocolate. But the shells of the cocoa bean fruit are also bursting with a sweetish-soft aroma and contain much fewer calories.
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.
Spearmint is one of the best-known types of mint. It would be hard to imagine the kitchens and gardens of this world without it. The plant belongs to the mint family and grows up to half a metre in height. Its taste is refreshing and highly aromatic.
Fennel belongs to the umbellifer family and has been popular for thousands of years around the globe due to its intensive aroma. It originally came from the Mediterranean region. Its sweetish-spicy taste is slightly reminiscent of anise.
This annual plant thrives in Asia and the southeastern part of the Mediterranean. People have revered its sweetish tasting fruit for thousands of years. In earlier times, anise was sacrificed to the gods. Now it is found in cakes and Christmas biscuits, as well as a delicious spice in many YOGI TEA®s.
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.
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.
The famous painter Albrecht Dürer saw it as "a gift from God": the nettle, which can reach a height of 1.5 metres. It grows in temperate zones throughout the world – at the wayside and along fences, as well as in meadows and gardens. Thanks to its pleasantly mild taste, it is an increasingly popular ingredient in foods, hot beverages or smoothies.
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.
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.
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.
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.
