Ingredients in Kandy Spice come directly from Sri Lanka - a country of the Indian sub-continent currently in deep financial crisis. Purchase a tin at the $20 donation price (select option from the dropdown menu) and we’ll donate $15 from each item sold to our Sri Lankan partner organization, who is distributing food, gas, and other necessities to spice factory workers.

Kandy Spice is named after the city in central Sri Lanka, where spice gardens abound. A UNESCO world heritage site and home to one of the most important relics of the Buddhist religion, the city is located in the hills of the Kandy Plateau, surrounded by tea and spice plantations. Our tribute to the flavors and aromas of Kandy uses directly sourced Sri Lankan sweet cinnamon as the base for a bouquet of warming spices that we love in baked goods, curries, or mulled wine.
Each of our Signature Blends is an original creation by our founder Claire Cheney inspired by the people, places, and seasons encountered in her travels. From professional chefs to novice home cooks these aromatic and unique blends are sure to inspire delicious creativity.
