Discover our natural bay laurel flavour
Native to the Mediterranean region, bay tree is an aromatic evergreen shrub. The bay leaf has quite a distinctive smell when you crumple it in your hands. Bay laurel is commonly mixed with thyme and parsley to make a bouquet garni.
What does bay leaf taste like
While dried bay leaves may not have a lot of aroma, if you infuse the leaves into water, you will notice some minty and black peppery notes. It is quite a subtle flavour and it can add a bit of bitterness to a heavy stock.
Fresh bay leaves tend to be more pungent than dried leaves, hence requiring fewer leaves in a recipe to obtain the same taste.
