What's included:

Flowering Hyssop Thyme (0.8 oz in a glass jar)
Our flowering hyssop thyme is a very special herb, only grown in the Middle East, where it is the primary ingredient in the za'atar spice blend (sometimes spelled zaatar, za'tar or zatar), along with sumac and sesame seeds. It has an ancient history of culinary and medicinal usage, and has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma. Use it in place of regular thyme with roasted chicken, grilled vegetables, and tomato sauces.

Silk Chili Flakes (1.8 oz glass jar)
Grown and harvested in Kahramanmaras, Turkey, these chili flakes are summery, slightly sweet and gently spicy, reminiscent of summer herbs and roasted tomatoes. So-called because of their smooth, slippery texture, the Silk Chili is the Turkish variety of the famous Aleppo Chili. These are a perfect all-purpose chili flake to be added any time you want to spice up your food.

Smoked Pimentón Paprika (1.8 oz glass jar)
Our smoked paprika is sourced from a single fabrica in Extremadura, a hot, dry region of western Spain. This deeply smoky, savory paprika is made from sweet red peppers dried over oak coals and adds an incredible depth of flavor to any dish.

Ground Black Lime (1.8 oz in a glass jar)
Our ground Black Lime is grown on a family farm in Guatemala, where ripe limes are dried in the sun until they oxidize, turning black and savory. A versatile ingredient common in Persian cooking, they have a savory, tart flavor that's great on roasted meat or vegetables, in stews and anywhere you'd use lime juice.

Royal Cinnamon (1.8 oz in a glass jar)
Our Royal Cinnamon has been harvested in the mountains around the ancient Vietnamese capital city of Huế for milennia. The same species as Saigon cinnamon, this is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized. Use it in place of Saigon or other cinnamons in pastries and baked goods, or sprinkle into rich, savory meat or tomato-based dishes.

New Harvest Turmeric (1.9 oz in a glass jar)
Our turmeric is grown organically on a small farm in southern India by an expert farmer specializing in sustainable agricultural techniques. It has a sweet, floral flavor without the metallic bitterness found in lower quality turmeric, and is perfect for both sweet and savory applications, in curries and other dishes as well as in turmeric teas and lattes.
