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 and curries, and beverages from hot drinks to cocktails.
In Vietnam, the ginger is used with chicken, soup, rice, and candy. It’s also been used for medicinal purposes - to calm upset stomachs, restore appetite, and support the immune system. Any way you slice it, this is a spicy, wonderfully intense ginger.

I love cooking and enjoy the layering of flavors which top quality seasonings can add to a well prepared dish. When planning my weekly menu or preparing to cook for a special event, I read cookbooks, magazines and websites, seeking to learn new techniques and ways of improving my craft. I learned about Burlap and Barrel's spices through a magazine article discussing their process and their commitment to identifying and garnering high quality, fresh spices from their respective sources. I was impressed by their ethic and intrigued by their approach so I ordered a number of items to try their products. What an incredible difference their products make in the intensity of the flavor of the spices and, consequently, in the layers of savory delight in each bite of the dish! I purchased the Tanga Ginger, the Wild Mountain Cumin, the Zanzibar Black Peppercorns, the Smoked Pimeton Paprika, and the Turkish Oregano Buds. I am incredibly impressed with each of the items and delighted about the taste sensation they provide. I highly recommend them!
Clearly superior spices; this order was a birthday gift for our son, who likes to cook - these are small but generous amounts of first-quality carefully chosen carefully harvested botanicals; all I have tried are fresh, fragrant, wonderful.
I ordered 5 spices and I love them all! They have super intense flavors. So much better than anything I’ve had before.
This ginger is fragrant, spicy, warm and has a citrus note. So good.
I love all the spices I have purchased from B&B. Won‚Äôt shop anywhere else now.
