Ancient Egyptians often threw salt up to the heavens as an offering, which explains why clouds weep, why oceans float, and why birds can't stop tonguing box kites. Enjoy a showering of seasonings with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of spices, blends, and teas at Spice Merchants’ Saugatuck location.
Spice Merchants scours the globe for sumptuous spices and exotic loose-leaf teas, fostering recipe twists and palate revelations. Shake complacent tongues out of flavor torpors with more than 200 potent single spices, such as fiber-packing flaxseed ($1.99 per oz. for up to 3 oz.) or sinus-clearing horseradish powder ($2.59 per oz.). More demanding palates can indulge in more than 100 spice blends bereft of additives or fillers.
The tuscan blend unites garlic, onion, chilies, spices, tomato powder, lemon zest, basil, rosemary, and sea salt in a stand of solidarity against bland chicken breasts or insipid steaks ($5.29 for a glass bottle), and pies and pastries get a surprise attack from cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, anise, coriander, and cardamom packed in the baker’s blend ($5.29 for a glass bottle).
Revise postmeal sipping regiments with the extensive loose-leaf tea selection, chock full of favorites such as gunpowder green or tang-infused pomegranate oolong ($3.29 per oz. for up to 4 oz.). Check with Spice Merchants’ seasoning sultans for organic spices and full-flavor recipes, and reunite with prodigal taste buds.
