It's back! This seasonal shrub is fresh purple perilla leaves and rhubarb. 

First up - what is shiso?

Perilla is a perennial herb from Eastern Asia thats grows easily and abundantly around us here in Northern New South Wales. There are many different names for it, but in Japan it is known as shiso.

Used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years, it's rich in calcium, iron, omegas, antioxidants and contains up to 10X the amount of carotenes as pumpkin. It’s also anti inflammatory, improving immune function and supporting the respiratory system specifically, traditionally used in congestive ailments and asthma.

As a member of the mint family, it is a digestive support and stimulant. It’s found traditionally as a condiment to protein based meals, and relieves indigestion.

And the taste...

It's hard to explain but shiso tastes a bit like cinnamon, clove, tarragon and mint yet nothing like that at all. Blended with tart and tangy rhubarb this shrub is bright, fresh, aromatic, fruity and delightfully unusual. It's also the softest peachy pink colour.

💗 We are so excited to share this latest shrub with you. 


How to use

Mix 35ml of shrub with 200ml of sparkling water or soda water and ice for a refreshing, aromatic botanical soda.
