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.
It was sacred for the Teutons and the flower of Sun God Ra for the Egyptians: the white feathered chamomile with its brilliant yellow petals. Chamomile is an herbaceous plant, the typical fragrance of which everyone knows. Its flowers taste slightly bitter and pleasantly mild.
The garden valerian belongs to the honeysuckle family and grows primarily on the shore and edges of the forests in Europe, western Asia, the Far East and Siberia. Its delicate-fragrant flowers taste pleasantly aromatic and are bursting with valuable essential oils.
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.
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.
Bees love its nectar-rich fruit, and human beings appreciate the spicy-fresh, lemony taste of its leaves. In the Middle Ages, lemon balm was so highly valued that it had to be cultivated in every European monastery garden per decree.
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.
The name of this wonderfully fragrant plant from the Mediterranean region is based on the Latin word salvare. Due to its fresh-spicy and slightly bitter taste, sage was already worth its weight in gold in old China.
We can smell it everywhere around the Mediterranean: the tantalising fragrance of lavender. The plant of the mint family is native to these areas, even if it is now cultivated throughout the world because of its beautiful flowers. Lavender tastes tart-spicy and slightly bitter. It contains valuable essential oils.
Mace is the shell of the nutmeg. Whether dried or ground, it has been used as a seasoning for many thousands of years. Its aroma is somewhat more subtle than that of nutmeg. It tastes spicy-warm and is extremely popular especially in the colder season.
