Horopito leaf has a hot peppery taste. Trying to eat a raw or fresh picked leaf will give quite a hot, chilli like taste. The Horopito plant is a native of New Zealand, often found in mountain forest areas.

Our Horopito herb product is simply created from leaf picked and then dried, before being milled into flakes.
