No trip to Mount Dora is complete without a visit to The Spice and Tea Exchange. Whether or not you are a self-professed chef or amateur cook, you want to stop in here. There are several sections of the store dedicated to specific categories. Salts, Peppers, Sugars, and Spices& Herbs. There are shelves that have jars of mixed spices for Fish, Meat, Poultry and International selections. The staff is very helpful in answering any questions and you can get on their mailing list for recipes. It's a very hands-on experience or maybe I should say nose-on since they allow you to open any jar that you want to breathe in the aroma of the spices. The prices are reasonable and I dare you to pick just one!! Enjoy!!

A great store for fresh teas, spices and sugars. We love to cook and found some awesome combos in grinders and great combos in teas. We left spending about $100.00 in all the departments. A GREAT resource

What a fantastic collection of teas and spices! We visit here a few times a yr and highly recommend this place. I cannot walk out the door with just a few things. I come for my go to teas Cranberry Apple Tart,Emperor's Chai tea,Sunrise Mate,and Mystic Dragon and always leave with a different one to try. I love the Viks Garlic Fix and Tuscany Spice Blend but my all time favorite spice is Scorpion Pepper Sea Salt. There is a flavor for anyone.

I am a tea lover, both hot tea and cold tea. I was excited to go into this store. They have a large selection of some amazing products. I asked the Sales Associate if they offer Internet Sales and she said yes.
I waited to buy some tea to drink at the counter and was ignored. I was disappointed and left. I work retail and know how not to treat customers, my friends were waiting to move on outside. Disappointing experience for me. I wanted to buy some items, plus only 1 person working on President’s Day.

I decided I needed a new grinder, or shocker for salt, and This place just popped up in front of us.
What I really like was the selection of different grinders, for salt, spices, etc; mostly filled, but some without as well.
The place was packed with people ...obviously a destination even thought I was unaware of it. They ship internationally as well, and most of their offerings are easy to fit into a cranny in your suitcase. I got a perfect set of salt grinders that will sit by the galley range, and I found three items for presents for friends.
This place was a great find, superior quality stuff, and a good selection.

Great variety! Many different samples to taste. The staff was helpful explaining the use of the infuser for the teas. Also provided explanation on the benefit of teas. The chai-colatte was very tasty. Nice place to browse.

This store - designed to resemble an outpost/exchange - is a treat for the senses. You are welcome to open the jars on the display and smell the contents (mostly teas and spices).

Air conditioned and tidy - it was worth a short visit if just to try something different ans escape the heat. I found some items to be a bit pricey - but I guess you have to go with what is available and make your own choices.

I would call in again.

While at the Mt. Dora Art Show, I stopped into the Spice and Tea shop. They have an incredible selection of spices. I like high quality spices and I picked up cinnamon, powered maple, and turmeric. Prices are fair and you can buy the quantity you need.

Great place to look for spices, teas, salt, and assorted other items. We found some interesting spice blends and teas for our efforts. The aromas are wonderful.
