You've arrived at The Kitchen Imp. Our passion is offering you the highest quality, organic, freshy-ground spices, sugars, salts and teas to enhance your cooking and add enjoyment to your life. Spices have long been known to have medicinal properties and beneficial effects on the body. They have been used for centuries by ancient cultures to promote healing and relaxation. Commercial spices are often treated with chemicals and pesticides – things you definitely don't want to add to your food or put into your body! 

If you frequent Etsy, you can find The Kitchen Imp there, as well, at

Browse, ask questions, make requests, and know that behind all of these delicious, high-quality spices lies reliable, helpful customer support. Need a menu for a big dinner party in two weeks and spices to go with it? Want tea for before bed that will settle your tummy and your nerves? Do you miss your Auntie's chai and want the next best thing? Just ask!
