Photo of the Day – August 23, 2010: Spices and Tease
You might first see the long tables covered in hot pink cloth with row after row of spice-filled bowls, or you may smell the rich, intense fragrances emanating from the bowls, especially on hot summer days. Spices and Tease sells an incredible variety of spices, mixes, black teas, and herbal teas at the Fulton Stall Market and several other markets in the city. Their bowls are overflowing with colorful curries, cinnamon sticks, and spice mixes from around the world, including Herbes de Provence, Cajun mixes, and many many more, including a favorite, Onion Bacon Salt. They also have herbal digestive teas, rooibos red tea, Earl Grey and black teas.
This is a family-owned business, and they are always happy to give you ideas and advice about what spices to use for any recipe you’re cooking. Maybe some of their spices will inspire you to start exploring whole new worlds of cooking. The website is under construction, but keep checking in at www.spicesandtease.com for their upcoming online store.
