Herbs and Spices in Sri Lanka have played the most important role in cuisine throughout the history of the country. Known as the Spice Island, Sri Lanka boasts a wide range of exotic spices with all the food in the island laden with rich flavours.
With roots set deeply in a land that has produced world-class spices for centuries, we at Silvertree are aware of the value of quality Ceylon spice in the culinary sphere. Seasoning every element of the diet, spices not only exude an irresistible fragrance but provide a plethora of health benefits as well. These well-documented health-enhancing properties are not a part of the makeup of ordinary spice products, however, as the quality, harvesting practices and storage of the precious herbs determines the health benefits one can reap from these flavourful powders. Consumers can rest assured with the knowledge that Silvertree’s spice products are sources from the eco-friendliest spice gardens in Sri Lanka where attention to detail and sound cultivating practices create the best spices in Sri Lanka.
Although spices are now widely available around the world, the aromatic powders ground from natural herbs were a precious commodity only enjoyed by the wealthy in centuries past. The origins of the spice trade date back to the Middle East who began the spice trade more than 4000 years ago while the Silk Road was instrumental in transporting the flavour of spices to the rest of the world. Some of the world’s best quality spices were endemic to Asian nations such as Sri Lanka which began to elevate cuisines around the globe after colonization.
