Market Spice “Awake to Spring” Gift Basket Giveaway

The nice folks over at Market Spice sent us their “For SpiceSake 100 Anniversary Cookbook” for review. This is a great cookbook. Has lots of color pictures to show ya just how amazing the foods and drinks look. Hubby and I were almost drooling reading this cookbook. Such innovative recipes. We gave some of the recipes in the Market Spice 100 Anniversary Cookbook ” For SpiceSake” a try while we were on vacation. Check  em out.We used the Greek Seasoning in both recipes. and created a really tasty meal. I have to admit that cooking was a bit of a challenge without my home kitchen. I was at a serious loss without my gadgets and utensils. This place didn’t even have a sharp knife. We made Mediterranean Capellini with Prawns, Feta and Cherry Tomatoes and Greek Garlic Bread.  The table was silent during our meal as everyone was to busy stuffing their faces to speak. When words did come they were all full of praise and will you make this again? Can’t wait to try out some more of these great recipes and spices.They even have a number of truly unique recipes with teas. I love tea. Market Spice has an incredible variety of teas available.

They Sent Me:

African Redbush Cinnamon Orange-

Zingy cinnamon with subtle sweetness from the Red Bush and citrus undertones. Yum. Smells like Christmas

Cinnamon-Orange Rooibos in a 24-ct Teabag Box. African Redbush (Rooibos) is a shrub with needle-like leaves grown only in South Africa. The bush is actually green, but oxidation and fermentation after cutting cause the leaves to turn red. Rooibos has a naturally sweet taste with 50 times the anti-oxidant properties of green tea. It is also naturally caffeine free. Ingredients: Organically grown African Redbush (Rooibos), Orange Peel, Cloves and Cinnamon(N/A)-Orange flavoring.

African Redbush True Vanilla-


This is some really excellent tea. You get that true vanilla bean flavor. They named this one perfectly. Smooth and delicious.

True Vanilla Rooibos in a 24-ct Teabag Box. African Redbush (Rooibos) is a shrub with needle-like leaves grown only in South Africa. The bush is actually green, but oxidation and fermentation after cutting cause the leaves to turn red. Rooibos has a naturally sweet taste with 50 times the anti-oxidant properties of green tea. It is also naturally caffeine free. Ingredients: Organically grown African Redbush (Rooibos), Stevia, Chamomile and Vanilla flavoring.

Smells really fantastic right in the bag.

Pina Colada-

I couldn’t find this one on the Market Spice site. Might be new. Smells soooo good. Tastes like a pina colada mixed with tea. Y’all just don’t understand how good this is. WOW. I think this is my favorite. Hubby adores it.

Hazelnut Creme Roobios

This one has a beautifully nutty fragrance. Flavor is clean with a perfect touch of hazelnut creme. I really like this tea.

The combination of hazelnut and chamomile is a soothing, sweet blend perfect for right before bed.
Ingredients: Rooibos, Chamomile, Hazelnut Creme and Vanilla Flavoring.

Knock Out Tea-

Doesn’t smell like much but tastes really really good hot with a touch of honey. Very pleasant, Smooth and satisfying.
Perfect way to unwind after a long day. No need to rely on alcohol or OTC sleep aides. Simply enjoy a glass of Knockout Tea and relax.

Our most popular sleep aid, the herbs in this tea will help send you into dreamland. Ingredients: Rosehips, Chamomile, Raspberry leaf, Catnip, Hops and Stevia Herbs. Caffeine-free.

Market Spice Spices:

Market Spice also sent over some of their delicious spices to check out. Really fresh flavors. You can smell how good they are from the moment you open the package. Just look at em. Beautiful to the eyes and taste great too.

Mexicali Mix-

Tried this in some calabaza and beef enchiladas. I love this mix. These guys know what spices go together. Wonderful flavor

Similar to our Taco Seasoning, this blend is amped up with the addition of a healthy dose of Oregano and Cilantro. Try adding this to your next batch of tacos, fajitas, guacamole, bean dip, or even salsa. Ingredients: Cilantro, Chili Powder, Onion, Cumin, Garlic, Paprika, Crushed Red Peppers, Oregano and Thyme.

Greek Seasoning-

This is a wonderful spice blend. I love the aroma and flavor combination.

The flavors of the Mediterranean combine to create this blend. Use on chicken, lamb, vegetables, on top of hummus, and in salads. Ingredients: Black Pepper, Garlic, Lemon Peel and Oregano. No salt.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Strong flavors come through. Perfect blend of spices bring back memories of Grandma’s House

We have combined all the necessary ingredients into one to create that perfect holiday pie! Just add up all the measurements of spices in your favorite recipe and substitute that same amount with this blend. Ingredients: Allspice, Cinnamon, Ginger and Nutmeg.

Bouquet Garni Salt Free-

No worries about bringing together the right combo of herbs. Market Spice has made the perfect blend to satisfy you taste buds.

Meaning “bundle of herbs” in French, this dried blend of herbs is typically used to enhance the flavors of soups, stews, and sauces. Ingredients: Basil, Rosemary, Dill Weed, Thyme and herbs.
