Green shiso is a bit spicy in flavor with a hint of cinnamon. The leaves are rich in calcium and iron, and because of its strong flavor, can stand up to such things as pickling.  Shiso is used in traditional medicine as well, believed to help prevent anemia and contain cancer-fighting properties. Some Japanese use it alongside ginger, rice vinegar, or umeboshi to help blood circulation.  Most common uses of shiso include serving it with sashimi, wrapped around sushi, or added to soups, rice, and tempura.
