  • Australian Wild Harvested Spiced Tea

    Australian Green Tea with Exotic Spices and wild-harvested Pepperberries

    Incorporating Lilli Pillis, Rosella flowers, Tasmanian Pepperberries  and Mandarin to energize and inspire your creative instincts. We use Green Tea from the Green Tea plantation in Victorian alpine regions. As with all our products we go  straight to the growing source to get our Green Tea.   This is a clean green tea that is soft and alluring in it’s gentle flavours.  At OutbackChef we’ve complimented this beautiful tea with some exotic spices plus some of our favourite wild-harvested favourites. Lilli Pilli’s, so many species Australia wide, but the Lilli Pilli’s used in our tea are from northern NSW, they have essential oils from ginger and cloves to high-light the spiceyness of this tea, we add Rosella flowers....an adopted native, but nonetheless a popular one, especially with the early pioneering women, plus mandarin.  Pepperberries picked as soon as they’re ripe and ready to go, from the chilly alpine regions of Tasmania.  This is an exciting tea that is so full flavour and a perfect pick-me-up in the middle of the day.
  • Australian Tea

    Lemon Myrtle & Orange is the sweet simplicity of a perfect match, an Australian superfood in a cup!

    I think most people are familiar with the strong punchy flavours of Lemon myrtle, but used with a little discretion this robust flavour can be gentle as well, it has a calming influence with its “orange” cousin and add some Australian grown black tea and this combo is ready to go.  When you feel like the familiar flavours of citrus and a great cuppa to boot, then this tea ticks all the boxes.  It’s an extremely popular tea for all ages and any time of day, enjoy a quite cuppa with some “just me” time or make a big pot for friends.  This tea also makes a great iced tea, make it as usual then chill straight away, don’t over-brew, once chilled add sweetener to taste.
  • WATTLESEED & PEPPERBERRY CHAI MOCHA

    go to recipe for this exotic touch of the east An extoic palette of spices, rich and inviting, enjoy Roasted Wattleseed blended with Australian Wild Pepperberry Chai with or without milk. The aroma intoxicating, the flavour sensational. Wattleseed is as popular as ever and there are so many species of wattle throughout Australia that it makes sense to try as many as we can, but beware, while most are edible...not all. At OutbackChef we take care that we get the best species of wattleseed for the job, in this case it’s Acacia victoriae and we do quite a dark roast for this one in order to get the best flavour for our Wattleseed and Pepperberry Chai, add some of the great middle eastern spices and viola! A great chai tea that can be drunk straight as is or with a touch of milk and honey.  Remember when making chai tea use water to extract the flavour, a tea made on milk wont allow the tea to reach it’s full potential...it just doesn’t work, add milk later.
  • THE PERFECT AFTERNOON TEA

    The crushed leaves of this free-spirited rambling Wild Mint bush combine with the calming effect of gentle Lavender to enhance the spirit and soothe the mind.

    It is now a proven fact that Lavender has a soothing, calming effect...we've all, most likely, enjoyed the benefits of aroma therapy with lavender, Lavender candles, oils, soaps and so the list goes on.  I'ts been a really popular aroma for centuries.  I've seen lavender Panna Cotta, lavender put into perfumes and bath oils, the list is endless. I always marvel at why some aromas and flavours just seem timeless and have a universal appeal. Lavender has definitely has made it's mark, it came into it's own in the Victoriana era where giving flowers and posies was fashionable, ahhhh great to see the romance of it all....some things never change and hope they never do!

    Now we know that lavender is not only useful for its beautiful aroma but also makes a great tea.

    Note here that not all lavenders can be consumed, the one that OutbackChef uses is a french lavender that is grown for culinary use.  Combining with mint, I've added some calendula and Australian grown green tea, it's a great brew, a truly Australian blend with these unique flavours, try yourself or makes a great gift.

  • I love all things liquorice or aniseed and Anise myrtle is just that in Australian native herb form

    Known lovingly as Aniseed myrtle, this dried and milled leaf is a fantastic addition to any dish requiring an aniseed flavour.  Use instead of Star Anise or even Pernod. The flavour diminishes if you cook too long, so like with many herbs add to your dish at the end of the cooking, this Australian native dried leaf won't disappoint. A great addition to a salad, Thai style food or seafood.  If you love "all things" aniseed, which I do, Anise myrtle is a great one to have in your kitchen pantry Remember, as with all herbs and spices, whilst they look fantastic on show in the kitchen, the best place to store it is in a dry, dark, cool space.
