A particularly unique member of the mint family, Shiso comes in both green and red shades. Shiso is a warming plant yet not spicy and therefore great at gently warming those who tend to be cold. In Chinese medicine shiso is said to warm the stomach and spleen, seen as an aid to digestion. 

Shiso makes a delightful companion to many dishes and can be used similarly to basil. It is often cooked with Japanese and Korean cooking. The red variety can be added to fire cider, vinegars or tea to add a beautiful pink hue.
