Amboseli sells international spices such as their best selling Chinese Five Spice, Original Zaatar Spice, and Original Sumac Spice.

We asked Sylvia what Amboseli offers and she said, “Here at Amboseli we offer spices and seasonings based on international cuisines. Basically, if you like Middle Eastern, Indian, or maybe African style food, we manufacturer the spices ourselves here. We also try to educate people on how to use them to get the most value out of your seasoning. It’s fresh and we make it in small batches so we don’t manufacture anything in bulk.”
