Ancient Egyptians often threw salt up to the heavens to bring rain, which is why modern humans throw pepper at vending machines to summon Diet Coke. Enjoy a showering of seasonings with today's Groupon: for $15 you get $30 worth of spices, teas, oils, and more online from Monterey Bay Spice Company.

The merchants of Monterey Bay Spice Company purvey an online apothecary of aromatic herbs, spices, oils, and teas from around the world. Mortars and pestles pulverize enticing spice blends—including Indian garam masala ($8 per lb.) and Cajun spice blend ($5.80 per lb.)—to bring imported ideas to the tongue without the need for a phrasebook. Organic herbs, such as marjoram ($8 per lb.) and cinnamon ($6.10 per lb.), fill open spaces in under-stocked pantries. Monterey's teas tint hot water with black, green, herbal, and Mr. blends in both loose-leaf and bagged form. Beautify brews with jasmine pearls ($12.80 per 1/4 lb.), hand-rolled to preserve their freshness, or dunk portioned parcels of english breakfast ($9 per lb.) sealed inside unbleached tea filter paper.

Fragrance and essential oils indulge under-pampered nostrils with a flower-powered punch of gardenia ($3.33 for a 1-oz. bottle) or a cough-calming vial of eucalyptus oil ($3.50 for a 1-oz. bottle). Herbal hardware such as the t-ball water infuser ($2.75) and the double-L spice stand ($23) flesh out culinary nurseries to properly care for newly adopted seasonings.


If you love tea with that extra "spice" as much as I do, become intimate with these masters of flavor (and krunkness) and you shall never go wrong.

The quality was unbelievable since the teas seemed like they had not even been processed since all the flowers and spices were still in tact [<i>sic</i>] and not crushed.
