The Spice Lab

The Spice Lab has gourmet salts and spices and recently I got to review some of their products and they are Gourmet Sea Salt Sampler which has 6 tubes with over 1 ounce of salt inside. The salts I got were French Fleu De Sel No.11 which is from the Guérande region of France and It has a delicate flavor, a moist texture, and a rich, sweet flavor that melts as it touches the tongue.

Himalayan Crystal Pink No.40 this is extra fine with .2-.5mm the size of table salt and mined from dark pink salts from the Himalayan Mountains.
 Applewood Smoked no. 7 is a flaky sea salt which is fine that is naturally smoked over real apple wood from the Yakima Valley in Washington State with aged applewood. 
Cyprus White Flake no.3 On the island of Cyprus this takes two years to form as it needs the perfect balance of weather and temperature to achieve this unique and versatile product which is 100% natural, with all  natural flavoring.
Murray River Pink Flake no.3 From the Murray River in Australia which is sourced by the Australian Alps which is light and delicate this salt is produced naturally from the underground brines. A red pigment and carotene, is secreted from the salt tolerant algae. The underground saline waters have been laying dormant for thousands of years.
Hawaiian Red Alaea No.12 this fine salt is rich in minerals and iron from the  red alaea clay which was extracted from  the vein between lava rocks and locals belief these have medicinally properties such as cleanse, purify and bless tools, canoes, as well as in healing rituals for medicinal purposes.

My Opinion: I have never had gourmet salts before and these I tried on many different dishes from chicken, beef, fish anywhere you would use a seasonings and the flavors were really tasty and the colors were amazing you realize sometime how beautiful the world is and what it can form. I enjoyed the idea of the salts coming in test tubes.
