Warndu Anise Myrtle is the most perfect substitute for any liquorice in both sweet and savoury dishes. Dried and ground, ready for your use at home.
This rainforests species has leaves with strong liquorice and aniseed flavours. Also known as aniseed myrtle or ringwood, it is found naturally in the subtropical rainforests of northern New South Wales. Anise myrtle leaf is one of the highest sources of the compound anethole, which gives it the aniseed flavour and aroma, and you will see when you use it at home.
