Exotics Sea Salt Sampler in Embossed Tin
Bringing beautiful, natural sea salts to life depends heavily upon the cooperation of Mother Nature and the skill of the salt artisan. With the earth covered by vast oceans of salt water, you would think sea salt must be everywhere, but not so, that is where the skill and long hours of patience waiting for the sun and wind to work their magic comes in. With only a limited window of time available each year, when the sun is at its peak and rainfall at a minimum, these beautiful salts are gently coaxed from the brine waters of shallow hand-crafted salt pans using skills and methods passed down for thousands of years. Each body of water has a unique mineral profile as well that further defines each salt’s individual flavor and texture.
Some of these Salt Stories tell of ancient oceans of long ago, their precious salts resting now high in mountain ranges where they must be mined, or in underground hot springs beneath the earth that bubble up in the most unexpected places. Some are newly discovered brine pools buried under scorching deserts, remnants of ancient seas, still salty but fed with fresh, pure waters of underground streams.
Enjoy this beautiful sampling of salts we have especially chosen for their rareness and exquisite taste.
