Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
Rare to find fresh curry leaves in HK. Of course they won't stay fresh forever, but then you simply have dried curry leaves that are fresher than the ones you buy in the package. Good flavor and worth the purchase.
OMG, these leaves rock!
Product received not as advertised - curry leaves were broken up into flakes and bare stems - hard to cook with leaving the dish with no curry flavour
Excellent service and quick delivery. Highly recommend.
