False peppercorns Back

Tasmanian berries Tasmania Lanceolata

The berry is perfumed with notes of myrtle and aromatic plants. The laurel smell is dominant and we find very pronounced green walnut nuts and a floral perfume with camphor notes, evoking fragrant geraniums.
The taste is mild, the spice is not immediate but it develops in mouth accompanied by a bitter touch. It leaves a very fresh and fruity taste in the palate. Clove flavour with fruity notes of currants, blueberry and cassis and hints of juniper.

The "pepper" of the aboriginal australians. Called "Tasmanian pepper", "mountain pepper" or "native pepper", this spice native to Oceania has no relation with pepper. It belongs to the Winteraceae botanical family. It is mainly harvested in Australia and Tasmania.
Use it with fish: sea bass, salmon, mackerel, sardines, herrings or scallops... or with meat: lamb, pork, pigeon, duck, pheasant and white meats. It could replace black pepper on red meats. It perfectly partners fresh cheeses, particularly goats' and sheeps' cheese. It goes very well with red fruit-based desserts.
Watch out: The berries give a blue-violet colour to the products they are in contact with.
