The quality of all the products are excellent. The wild thyme, oregano, rosemary and bay leaves elevate any dish. I enjoy the Mountain Tea. It is an herbaceous tea - a taste I like. I plan to always keep Spartan Table products in my kitchen.
I cant believe how small these soaps are. 2 fit into the palm of your hand. It could bot be used as a bidet soap as they are too small and woukdnt last at all. I cant believe I paid 60 canadian for this. I was expecting a great product. And I was extremely disappointed not to mention angry.
It’s an unexpected taste. I think it may be an acquired taste. Love the chamomile though. Thanks
