Coastal Myrtle is a citrus-fragranced spice that is native to coastal regions of Australia. It has been described as a citrus tangy zing.
The aroma of coastal myrtle is similar to lemongrass and kaffir lime with a slight lemon hint.
It imparts a soft lemony flavour and is successfully used in herbal tea blends to flavour cookies, ice creams and sorbets. In addition coastal myrtle is a good choice to add flavour to spice rubs, pasta, stir-fries, and also a marinade for poultry and fish, flavoured vinegars, salad dressings, and dips.
