Horopito Herb / Spice

A unique flavour of New Zealand - Horopito is the native 'bush pepper' of NZ.

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 culinary herb is simply created from hand picked leaves of wild growing plants, and then dried, before being milled into flakes.

Ready for you to use as a herb, spice, or seasoning.

Choose from the following options of pure 100% dried Horopito only, or mixed herb and seasoning combinations that include it.
