Origin

The plant is native to Mexico and Central America and has been in use since Aztec times, both for religious and medical purposes. It is eaten as an herb and is commonly used as a substitute for tarragon. The leaves have a tarragon-like flavor, with hints of anise. In areas where it is native, the leaf is an important flavouring of ‘chocolatl’, an Aztec foaming cocoa-based drink. The dried leaves and flowering tops are steeped in hot water to make tea that is a popular drink in Latin America.
