Culinary notes:

In each of the eight dominant Chinese cuisines, the balance of flavour is fundamental.

A finely harmonised blend of cinnamon, star anise and chilli peppers bring the true taste of Chinese cooking to your meals. Used in many dishes from hot pots and slow braises to fast and fiery stir-fries, this versatile blend adds a simultaneously sweet, hot and savoury flavour to any dish it’s added to. A prominent influence in the global spice route is grounded in China’s Silk Road history. Its spices and blends are some of our globe’s most ancient flavour bases and this blend is a fine example of the depth of flavour of the various cuisines within China. Use with fish, seafood, chicken, pork, beef, you name it! Find out more about Chinese cuisine and its history here.
