Frequently Asked Questions
01. About Sprice Tribe
Who is behind Spice Tribe?
At Spice Tribe, we are passionate chefs on a mission to change the way we think about food. Spice Tribe was started by Chef Trent Blodgett.
Why did Chef Trent start Spice Tribe?
I started Spice Tribe because cooking changed my life and I want to help others find health and happiness just as I did. From anxiety and depression to passion and purpose. I replaced processed food with real ingredients from the earth and I began to practice mindfulness meditation while I cook. If you are struggling and life is getting you down I can’t recommend learning to cook enough. It’s never too late to learn and reap the benefits.
What do you mean by mindful cooking?
Mindful cooking is about being aware and present of all your senses as you create a meal. Ex. How does it smell (roasty, caramelized, sweet, burnt) How does it taste (sweet, sour, bitter, umami) How does it sound (sizzle, crunch)

03. About Our Spices
What is farm-direct sourcing and how do you source your spices?
We work as close to the source as possible, this often means directly importing from the farmer or cooperatives who source directly from farms. Each year we purchase the annual harvest for each spice we carry to ensure maximum freshness. We curate every spice journey, our chefs test the flavors, sometimes creating blends, and if it meets our high standards, we release it to our Tribers.
Are your spices organic and non-GMO?
Our first priority is to source organically grown ingredients. However, sometimes the farms are small-batch and do not have the resources to be certified organic. All our spices are non-GMO.
How can I score a discount or find deals?

Can I add a gift note?
Yes you can. During the checkout process, please check the box that says ‘Gift Order’ and type your note. We will send a gift receipt and remove any pricing information.
Can I buy spices for corporate gifts?
Yes you can. Please direct all corporate gifts related inquiries to email@example.com.
How long will my spices last?
Whole spices can last a few years without losing flavor if stored properly. Ground spices start losing flavor after 3-6 months. However there is no expiration. For best results, store your spices in a cool place out of direct light.
