#Review - Tsp Spices, Spice Sets
The first things that struck me as soon as I opened up the parcel and caught sight of the Organic Sun Shine - lemon zest and orange zest spice set and the Organic Herb Sampler was how wonderful these to would be to give or receive. It has gift written all over it. The packaging resembles that of a CD or small book box set. The lines are clean and I'm fond of the chocolate with white trim on the boxes.
Inside the Organic Sun Shine spice set is 2 tins, one containing 12 - 1 tsp packets of Lemon zest and the other containing 12 - 1 tsp packets of Orange zest.
Inside the Organic Herb Sampler are 24 packets in total of 6 different spices: Basil, Dill Weed, Oregano, Rosemary, Tarragon, Thyme
First of all I have to say that I find the whole idea behind tsp spices really interesting, because they are individually wrapped, the spices keep their potency longer. So there is a lot less wasted spice. I find the spices much more flavourful than any conventional spices I have recently purchased. It has a homegrown taste and I know any gardener will be pleased with that notion. I learned while browsing the tsp spices website that not only did a spice need to be free from pesticides and insecticides, but to be considered organic a spice had to be pure... or free from debris like twigs, fillers and other foreign matter. Tsp Spices supports sustainability and healthy farming practices. Actually, I have really enjoyed browsing through their website and I encourage you to do the same.
