There are many species of native mint in the Australian natives, they are all wild-harvested. Some, like River Mint have a strong spearmint taste and aroma, whereas the Round-leaf or Bush Mint is more like your traditional mint with a slight aromatic edge. The early settlers used Australian native mints to make mint sauce for their Sunday roast lamb. This native bushfood herb is just as versitile as the traditional mints and can be replaced by them, use a little until you get used to the strong minty flavour. OutbackChef’s Wild Mint & Lavender Tea is a perfect way to enjoy a quiet cuppa in the afternoon, made with Australian grown green tea and beautifully packaged this tea makes a wonderful gift for someone special.
