Buy Tonka Beans
Milled and blended in Hong Kong.
The new trendy ingredient of last year is here to stay! Tonka Beans smell like Vanilla and Cherries had a baby, and also impart flavour notes of Cardamom. They're an exciting unique flavour that's recently been picked up by foodie magazines around the world. We really love them as an alternative to Vanilla in ice creams and custards. Much like Vanilla though, Tonka Beans are an exotic, spice treasure. Luckily,a little bit of Tonka also goes a very long way. One bean is enough to flavour a batch of 24 cupcakes by itself! Shave fresh using a microplane and keep in your fridge when not in use.

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.
