Royal Cinnamon

Our 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. Use it in place of Saigon or other cinnamons in pastries and baked goods, or sprinkle into rich, savory meat or tomato-based dishes.

Tasting notes: Brown Butter • Buckwheat Honey • Orange Peel


  • Beautiful in baked goods, spice cookies, oatmeal and desserts
  • Brew with your favorite coffee or tea

Wild Mountain Cumin

Our Wild Mountain Cumin has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor evocative of grilled meats and sweet caramelized onions. The tiny, oblong seeds are hand-picked by foragers in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan. The seeds are smaller and softer than the cumin you may be used to, and they do not need to be ground before use.

Tasting notes: Grilled Onion • Dried Apricots • Mountain Air


  • Bloom seeds in hot oil or ghee and use as the base for stews, curries or braises
  • Mix whole seeds into guacamole, vinaigrettes or yogurt-based spreads

Ground Black Lime

Black Lime is a versatile ingredient with a famously savory and tart flavor. Ours comes from a family farm in Guatemala. The limes are sun-dried, then ground into an easy-to-use powder. 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.

Tasting notes: Citrus Peel • Sauvignon Blanc • Leather


  • Sprinkle into rice, soups, fish and kebabs
  • Use as garnish for cocktails, especially sours and margaritas

Zanzibar Black Peppercorns

Our award-winning, vine-ripened Zanzibar Black Peppercorns are carefully hand-picked and sun-dried for a bright, lemony and spicy peppercorn that's unlike anything else on the planet. These are rich, chocolate-colored peppercorns with dense wrinkles and a bright, fruity spiciness.

Tasting notes: Cacao  • Lemon • Tropical Heat


  • Grind over everything for a bright, peppery kick 
  • Make the best cacio e pepe of your life 

Toasted Onion Powder

Our Toasted Onion Powder has an exceptionally rich, sweet, toasty flavor that leaves other onion powders in the dust. The delicious allium flavor comes through in stews, stocks, braises, rubs, dressings, savory breads and more. It can even be used in sweet baked goods — its onion-y sweetness is unlike anything we've ever tasted.

Tasting notes: Fresh Bread • Toasted Sesame • Sugarcane


  • Bloom in oil or butter at the start of cooking any savory dish
  • Add to stocks, soups, sauces, braises and dressings

Smoked PimentĂłn Paprika

Our rich, sweet Smoked PimentĂłn Paprika comes from a protected region in Western Spain, where sweet red peppers have been grown and smoked for centuries. Fresh peppers are slowly dried over oak coals, which imbue them with a rich, smoky flavor that imparts a savory depth and gorgeous color.

Tasting notes: Hardwood Smoke • Ripe Tomato • Summery Sweetness


  • Mix with salt, ground cumin and coriander for a meat seasoning or dry rub
  • Add to your favorite classic Spanish paella recipe

Flowering Hyssop Thyme

Our Flowering Hyssop Thyme has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma. It has an ancient history of culinary and medicinal usage in Turkey, where it is the primary ingredient in za'atar. Use it in place of regular thyme with roasted chicken, grilled vegetables and tomato sauces.

Tasting notes: Lavender • Wild Herbs • Pine


  • Add to stocks, soups, stews - especially your tomato sauces
  • Toss with vegetables, olive oil, salt, pepper and chili flakes before cooking

All our single origin spices are sourced directly from our partner farmers around the world. They are grown regeneratively and organically whenever possible, and our supply chain is direct from farm to jar. These are the freshest, most flavorful spices on the market, and your purchase helps support smallholder farmers in many different countries.

Most spice supply chains are completely opaque: where the spices came from, who grew them, and how they were grown is usually a mystery. That’s not by accident — the systems we live with today are legacies of the colonial spice trade, which was designed to disenfranchise farmers and shortchange consumers. Burlap & Barrel is a Public Benefit Corporation, and our mission is to end inequality and exploitation in food systems by connecting farmers to high-value markets, helping smallholders farmers generate larger share of the product's value, and establishing long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships.

Our business model is not only better for our partner farmers and our world, it also makes for much fresher, more flavorful spices!
