Our story

Fresh spice and tea blends, from our family to yours.

We are an artisan food producer specialising in high quality hand-blended and home-ground spice blends, loose teas and our ever popular spice tin gift sets. We source the freshest spices and teas from around the world for our customers, which are carefully hand-blended, roasted, ground, stored and packed just before sending. Our guarantee is that you will never have smelt spices like them (so much so that you can often smell them sitting on your front doormat, with the aromas coming up from outside the packaging!).

All of our items are sourced and quality controlled by a mother and son team, Shashi and Sanjay Aggarwal. Shashi (aka Mamma Spice) was born in Kenya, grew up in India and has lived in the UK for over 30 years and so brings a wealth of international spice knowledge and know-how to our kitchen table.

Do also check out our authentic Indian Spice Tins, known as 'Masala Dabbas' in India, as they are quintessential in any Indian household in the UK and overseas. These shiny stainless steel tins contain seven separate containers for easy access to the myriad of spices that you will need to create perfectly blended dishes like curries, stews or tagines (and we have conveniently already filled them with fresh spices to get you started). If your thinking about giving one as a gift do check out our tins with a silk cover, which have been lovingly upcycled from silk sari material by Mrs A to fit the tins perfectly.

We operate 'not just for profit' and support several charities and social enterprises who help people and animals in the UK, Kenya and India, such as FRANK Water and Find Your Feet. We were proud to be featured in the Guardians Small Business Showcase competition for Startup of the Year and Home Based Innovation in 2014 and we won a Great Taste Award in 2015 for our Garam Masala!

We hope you have an enjoyable browse around our shop, if you have any questions then do please ask.

Blended with Love

Sanjay & Shashi

    Great company to deal with - quick and clear communication, very friendly and helpful. Lovely idea for spice jars. We have actually mounted ours on a metal board on the wall. The spices themselves are really top quality.

    Exactly as described - nice presentation with the tin, smaller bowls and the pretty silk cover. I particularly liked the little spoon which is included in the set - nice touch!
