What’s in it? 3 hand-picked, small batch, freshly ground spice blends and kitchen-tested, detailed recipes and ideas.

RawSpiceBar is a subscription service offering a monthly box consisting of three freshly ground spice blends from a different region each month. All flavors come with kitchen-tested recipes, personalized for your diet. Add your own fresh ingredients for cooking globally inspired meals for four. The spice blends are perfectly portioned, freshly ground and expertly blended by top chefs for maximum authentic flavor. It's all done just days before shipping to guarantee freshness. Your first order ships within 10 days of purchase, and on the 10th of every month thereafter.

Shipping has really improved with RawSpiceBar. I've been getting shipping confirmation e-mails and the envelopes typically take less than two weeks to arrive. This one shipped May 3 and arrived May 15.

May's kit is called "The Burmese Flavour Kit". I am very interested in this one as Burma, now called Myanmar, is one of the places we may go on our travels to South East Asia next year!

Burmese food, like most cuisines, combines flavors from many regional parts, and is uniquely dominated by a combination of strong, sweet and savoury flavors, without being sweet or spicy. Rice is the cornerstone of many diets and is often eaten as noodles or rice cakes.

The variation recipe this month is Burmese Lemongrass Ginger Sliders or Lemongrass Coconut Milk Noodles. The latter is vegetarian. For these recipes we use Lemongrass Cambodian Curry spice and Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. The sliders sound fantastic so I will be making those! Something I've noticed recently with RawSpiceBar is that some of the recipe cards seem to have incomplete, or truncated recipes. The Lemongrass Noddles recipe directions call for ingredients that aren't listed in the ingredients list (ginger, scallions, lime juice). The recipe online appears complete, so I think I may start going by the online recipes instead of using the cards.

Myanmar is known for its famous fermented tea leaf salad, called "lahpet thoke" in Burmese. Lahpet means green tea and thoke means salad. The salad combines fermented green tea leaves with fried garlic, peanuts, sesame seeds, and shredded cabbage. It sounds easy and tasty. Check out the recipe here.

RawSpiceBar says they also love the Tea Leaves Rub on tofu or salmon, so they also included a recipe for Tea Leaf Rubbed Baked Salmon. I might save the rub for the salmon recipe, and source my own tea leaves to make the salad as well. So many options!

May's RawSpiceBar kit included four recipes and three spices to bring you the flavours of Myanmar (Burma). This Burmese Spice Kit features fresh and interesting flavours. I'm most curious to try the Tea Leaf Salad!
