Garam Masala means “hot spice” in Hindi, less for its capsaicin content than for the spice mixture’s intensity. The formula varies from region to region (or even family to family) in South Asia but includes cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and black peppercorns. Ours has a pronounced cardamom note to add brightness. It lends complex nuances to dry rubs and marinades. Sprinkled as a garnish, just a pinch will contribute tremendous fragrance and flavor.
Garam Masala now also comes in our special Longevity jar made of thick, durable, unique glass which blocks out damaging light that causes decay. This airtight, light-proof jar blocks out harmful air, moisture, and light, protecting our spices and preserving their freshness. Our Longevity jar not only looks beautiful and elegant, but it's also completely reusable, eco-friendly, and will last for years. All spices in the Longevity collection come in refill packs, so you only need to get the Longevity jar once for each spice and then just get the refill packs when the spice runs out, reducing waste and creating a sustainable solution for your kitchen. Longevity jar size: 2" diameter, 3.5" high.
