Purple shiso flowers are tiny purple flowers grown on sprigs of purple shiso (aka purple mint). Each sprig is cut to a length of approximately 4”.
Purple shiso has a different flavor profile than green shiso – tasting less like a combination of herbs and instead more like a combination of spices (ginger, cumin, and cinnamon). These flowers can be left on the sprig for garnishes, or delicately stripped from the sprig and sprinkled on to dishes.
Shiso flower sprigs are the perfect aromatic garnish for cocktails.
