Shiso is the Japanese name for an annual herb called Perilla, which belongs to the mint family. It is used in quite a few Asian cuisines. Shiso comes in green or purple leaves. The one we have growing is Britton which is green on one side and purple on the other. It has a unique and vibrant taste with hints of anise, cinnamon and basil. Like most leafy herbs, it is best used raw, the leaves whole or chopped.
