These cloves come from the small island of Pemba in Zanzibar, Tanzania, which is famous for its cloves. Handpicked right before flowering for the most mature flavor, the cloves are then dried before being jarred and shipped to you. These cloves have a bright, sweet intensity with a rich warmth and a numbing menthol buzz. The tingly sweetness of the cloves has tasting notes of pineapple and brown sugar, and melds perfectly into mulled wine, herbal teas and chai masala, and baked goods, like anything Pumpkin spice or holiday spiced.

Burlap & Barrel sources their single origin spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms, bypassing brokers and middlemen who drive prices up and quality down. Founders Ethan Frisch and Ori Zohar visit farms personally and spend time with farmers, learning firsthand about the economic, social, and cultural factors behind their farming methods. Burlap & Barrel then supports these farmers by providing purchase commitments to give greater financial security, sharing knowledge from across their global farmer network, and expanding on-site value-added activities such as sorting, grinding, and packaging to increase farmer revenue. Burlap & Barrel works with their partner farmers to identify unique varietals of spices that are often overlooked by the commodity spice industry – as well as valuable byproducts – to maximize the farms' earnings. Plus, in selling these spices, Burlap and Barrel highlights the areas they come from, bringing attention to sustainability and ecological needs and practices in other parts of the world.
Keep in a dry place away from heat and light. While spices will stay good for a long time, they don't necessarily "get better with age," so use them generously and often! Read more about Burlap & Barrel's spices HERE.
