Herb of the Year for 2009 Laurus nobilis This ancient herb, Bay Laurel, comes from a Mediterranean evergreen. It has long, narrow, pointed, dark, and leathery leaves. The flavor is between eucalyptus, mint, lemon and fresh cut grass and has been described as smoky & spicy. Don't confuse this with California Bay which is what is usually sold here as Bay Leaves. The leaves have a similar shape, but the California Bay leaf feels softer by comparison. The flavor is pungent, sweet, lemony, spicy, with a hint of cloves and bizarrely, turpentine. Herb of the Year for 2009 as chosen by the International Herb Association. Bay leaves are very light weight. For this reason, we pre-package them in a quarter ounce weight. See Bag O' Bay elsewhere for a quarter of an ounce package for just a dollar.
