We are a family run artisanal spice and tea company run by a mother and son team Sanjay & Shashi Aggarwal (aka Mamma Spice & Baby Spice!). Started over the kitchen table on Christmas Day 2012, the business is centered around Shashi's expertise and knowledge with spices and spice blends.
Shashi was born in Kenya, grew up in India and has lived in the UK for over 30 years. She has 50+ years of cookery experience and is an oracle when it comes to using spices, much to her families benefit.
We specialise in producing small batch, freshly ground spice blends and tea blends. We source the freshest raw spices from around the world, hand-blend, hand-roast and hand-grind them to authentic recipes, and then send them every day to customers and stockists around the UK. We are often told by our customers that they have never smelt spices like them, and that they can smell them as soon as they get delivered through the letterbox!
We are also well known for our spice tins, known in India as 'Masala Dabba's'. These shiny stainless steel tins imported from India contain 7 separate containers for easy access to the myriad of spices that you will need to create perfectly blended dishes. We have various collections including our popular Indian set, Moroccan set, African & Middle Eastern set, Chilli Set, Sea Salts and Loose Tea set!
Along with running a very busy business we support several charities, the main one being FRANK Water who build sustainable water projects in India and Nepal.
We love to talk to our customers and are passionate about sharing our love for cooking; do see our recipe section for some great ideas. If you have any questions or need any 'Spice Advice' do get in touch, we would love to hear from you all.
