What is myric balsam?

Myric balsam, also called wood-sent-bon, is used mainly in cooking to season dishes of all kinds such as stews, soups or game. Myrique catkins are used in the production of craft beer and microbreweries. Adding it to beers adds a touch of flavor and also makes them foam. Myric balsam can also be infused to make a delicious boreal infusion from here!

What does myric balsam taste like?

An aromatic with a complex and resinous taste, which evokes the aromas of the boreal forest. Its catkins have peppery and woody aromas, with a hoppy touch. Its slightly bitter taste can be reminiscent of nutmeg, fir and even bay leaf.

What is the difference between catkins and sweet balsam leaves?

The taste between the two is pretty much the same. On the other hand, kittens have a more intense, peppery and very forest taste.
