WHAT DO FLOWERS TASTE LIKE?
The flavour varies from sweet and spicy to mild and slightly bitter, or sour and lemony. Even varieties of the same plant can taste different from one another. Soil and weather conditions play a significant role in the floral flavour at harvest.

WHAT DO FLOWERING HERBS TASTE LIKE?
• The edible flowers of HERBS taste just like the mother plant, only milder. EXAMPLE: Chive blossoms have a mild onion flavour.
• Use the flowers of herbs in the same way and in the same dishes or drinks as you would the herb itself. Flowering herbs make a lovely finishing element to savoury dishes and cocktails
