The bay leaves are derived from laurels. Laurel (scientific name: Laurus nobilis), also known as laurel, laurel tree, sweet laurel, and laurel crown, is the source of seasoning laurel leaves. It is native to the shrub-rock areas of the Mediterranean coast and Asia Minor, it is now found all over the world. The leaves are dark green, oval, leathery, bitter, and fragrant. After drying, its bitterness can be reduced and its aroma will be enhanced, so it can be used as a seasoning, i.e. "bay leaves".
