A wild herb found in Europe and America, Epazote (pronounced eh-pah-ZOH-tay) is a green herb with a sharp, strong flavor. Often compared to cilantro (coriander), Melissa’s Dried Epazote is made up of crushed leaves whose pungent flavor also works as an anti-gas agent when combined with beans. Popular in Latin cooking, Epazote is also used by both Mexican Indians and Europeans to create an herbal tea known as tisane. Although Epazote can be grown from seed, it is rarely found in fresh form. Melissa’s dried Epazote is available in a 12/.50 oz. package.

Hand selected for excellent quality, Melissa’s Dried Epazote is made from the highest quality of imported herbs available. Sealed in an air-tight package inside a reusable zip lock bag, Melissa’s Epazote is double-bagged for freshness. This zip lock bag is perfect for freezing and keeps Melissa’s Epazote's flavor garden-fresh for several months.
