Bush Tucker - Australia's Superfoods! Aborigines have been living long, healthy lives for centuries, due to their incredible connection, understanding and respect for the land. The joy of bush foods is that they don’t taste like anything you’ve ever tasted before. Eg, aniseed myrtle tastes a little like liquorice tea; strawberry gum, a mix of passionfruit & strawberry; warrigal greens, between spinach & basil.
