Herbs & Spices

Since 1994, South China Seas has spent over 30 years sourcing the most intense and flavourful spice growers to offer unrivalled quality, selection, and freshness. Our ever growing collection of spices and blends represent our passion for flavourful food and exploring new cultures through food.

Traditionally we have been known for our single source spices (Cinnamons, Turmeric, Paprikas, Sumac) but over the last few years we have built a steady following for our custom made blends (Lebanese 7 Spice, Dukkah, Zatar) all of which were lovingly formulated by our team of spice experts (with input from our amazing customers).

Our team is always working on new and exciting blends that represent the ever changing culinary landscape. If you have any ideas for new blends we would love to hear from you.
