The 6 spice collection includes:
Silk Chili (1.8 oz. glass jar)
These summery and spicy Silk Chili come from Kahramanmaras, Turkey. Also known as marash pepper, the Silk Chili is botanically identical to the Aleppo pepper, which has been cultivated in Syria for centuries. They have a warm, tomato-like flavor and a medium heat, similar to Espelette and Korean chilis.
Ground Laurel Bay Leaves (1.5 oz. glass jar)
Our ground Laurel Bay Leaf is a pure expression of the savory, herbal flavor of the bay leaf. Sourced from the rocky Mediterranean coastline of Turkey, then dried and ground into a powder, it's a versatile alternative to whole bay leaves.
Purple Stripe Garlic (1.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Purple Stipe Garlic Powder comes from an heirloom variety with a purple stripe on its papery skin and bulbs about half the size of what you're used to seeing. It's grown by a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam and has a savory and sweet flavor profile that adds depth and complexity to everything it touches.
Flowering Hyssop Thyme (0.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Flowering Hyssop Thyme is a very special herb that is 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 it has has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma.
Wild Icelandic Kelp (2.5 oz. glass jar)
Harvested from the bottom of the frigid North Atlantic off the coast of Iceland, this wild oarweed kelp has a deep umami flavor and oceanic minerality, salty and briny. Perfect for adding depth, savoriness and body to soups, for finishing meat and seafood dishes or as a salt substitute.
Royal Cinnamon (1.8 oz. glass jar)
The same species as Saigon cinnamon (Cinnamomum loureiroi), Royal Cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and it exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized.
The 9 spice collection also includes:
Herati Saffron (0.5 oz. jar)
Our saffron threads are pulled carefully from the flower, which leaves a characteristic flame-colored tail on each thread. That slight gradation in color is your assurance that our saffron is 100% pure and never dyed or otherwise adulterated. Our saffron threads are also uncommonly delicate, with a warm, honeyed fragrance reminiscent of dried roses and fresh hay.
Cloud Forest Cardamom (1.7 oz. glass jar)
Our cardamom is sweet and tart, reminiscent of summer fruits, fresh herbs and cut grass. The cardamom fruit turns yellow as it ripens and has a slightly softer, sweeter flavor than standard green cardamom, but is perfect in recipes that call for green cardamom.
Buffalo Ginger (1.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Buffalo Ginger is an heirloom ginger variety from a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam. Known for its fruity and floral aroma and powerful heat, this is a complex, flavorful ginger powder that will elevate baked goods, stews, curries, and beverages from hot drinks to cocktails.
The 12 spice collection also includes:
New Harvest Turmeric (1.9 oz. glass jar)
Our turmeric is grown organically in southern India by Dr. Salunhke, 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.
Ea Sar Black Pepper (1.8 oz. grinder-top jar)
The Ea Sar Black Pepper is a combination of two heirloom pepper varieties, Vĩnh Linh (grown by Dūng) and Trâu Xanh (grown by Thanh). Together, the two types of sun-dried peppercorns hit a perfect balance of fragrance and flavor.
Turkish Oregano Buds (2.0 oz. grinder-top jar)
Our zesty, bright oregano buds come from Turkey, where they have to be picked by hand just before they open into oregano flowers. These tiny, pinecone-shaped buds have everything we love about oregano, but with a particularly beautiful spicy, hoppy twist. Crumble into salad dressings, sprinkle over pasta and pizza, use in roast chicken and meat marinades, or sneak them into your grilled cheese.
Great addition to spice collection; savory, tasty-still exploring all the taste possibilities
I have a slightly different selection for myself and love it. This one was for a friend and I believe she also is enjoying using these great spices.
Got this set as a gift over the holidays. Everyone who received them absolutely loved them!
I got this starter set as a gift a few months ago and have found myself regularly using the cinnamon, the purple stripe garlic and the wild mountain cumin. All of these are spectacular; pungent, fragrant and so very pure that they feel like the essence of each spice. Best spices I have ever used (and have already ordered for a friend). Thanks for all your hard work in sourcing and producing such great spices!
I am amazed at how fresh and fragrant all the spices are. I can tell they're fresh and high-quality. What a huge difference the spices have made in my meals. NEVER going back to grocery store spices! Thank you!
