A twist of lemon myrtle

Lemon myrtle is an Australian native rainforest tree found in northern New South Wales and south east Queensland. Its leaves produce oil that is more lemon than lemon. That’s right, lemon myrtle leaves have the highest amount of citral of any plant known in the world. The result is an intense, refreshing citrus flavour with layers of lime and lemongrass.
