Other Information

Tasmanian Pepper is obviously named Tasmania, which was named after 17th century Dutch seaman Abel Tasman, who was the first European to ‘find’ Tasmania in 1642. The leaves contain polygodial, a compound which provides for the hot spicy element, along with other compounds which make the other aromatic flavourings.
