The Spice & Tea Exchange is a unique little shop full of spices and teas, but also has separate areas dedicated to salts, peppers etc.,, and carries gift packs with all available to sample. Nice location in an attractive brick building with an undercover entrance. Pricey, but quality.

Last night I attended a mixology class featuring Head Bartender Robert McGill, from the Palm Lounge at Mangolia's on King St at The Spice and Tea Exchange. The store often hosts cooking classes by chefs from top Alexandria restaurants. I loved learning secrets to great cocktails and how to use spices from the store to infuse bourbon, gin, and simple syrups. I've visited some of the other Spice & Tea Exchanges. They all are unique and I can find pure and mixed spices and teas that I can't find elsewhere. They prepare many of the spice blends in the store, so what I'm getting is fresh. Love this store!!

Great place to find something for everyone. The selection is eclectic, and a wide variety of spices and teas. They will customize spice and tea mixtures for you. Love there flavored sugars. And you can sample most everything you want to purchase before you do.

This shop had spices and teas loose in glass containers. Product could be purchased in pre-measured bags, or it could be weighed and bagged to the purchaser's specifications. The place smelled WONDERFUL, and it was fun to browse for at least 30 minutes or more. There were great gadgets for sale as well.

Walk in, breathe, and be refreshed by the aroma of far & near spices and teas. Lovely staff, beautifully displayed fares, and reasonable prices for the quality of the spices and teas available. Unique spice and tea jar samples permit you to really choose widely from this vast array of offerings. A must stop for self or gifting!
