I absolutely love this Fab Find. Spices of Lezzet is a company that offers the finest spices and salts from around the world, that are not commonly seen in the United States. Lezzet (the Turkish for the word “taste”)specializes in exotic salts and spices from regions like India and Turkey, France, and the Mediterranean. Their products guarantee to give your dishes that little something extra with their exquisite flavors and presentation.

There are many salts available on from Spices of Lezzet like Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt, Fine Himalayan Pink Salt, and Fleur de Sol.  Lezzet also carries common spices like Cinnamon, Turkish Bay Leaves, and Cumin and worldly spices like Fenugreek, Isot Pepper, and Mediteranian Oregano.

Each product has a Flavor Profile, describing the smell, flavor, and use, to better help you choose the spices and salts right for your taste.

The salts and spices range anywhere from $10.55 to $16.99 depending on the product.
