Based out of Northern California, American Wave is on a mission to provide our customers with the most delicious, pure, fresh, organic, and ethically sourced spices, herbs and tea that the world has to offer. We work directly with growers in more than half-a-dozen Asian countries, carefully selecting the produce at their exact point-of-origin.
East West Spice; our spice brand brings the warmth, depth, and flavor of Earth’s eastern reaches into your western kitchen. Our team desires to make the deep, complex flavors of eastern dishes more accessible to our friends and family out West. The rich food cultures of South and Southeast Asia are particularly close to our hearts, and are sure to become close to yours as well. These remarkable dishes regularly combine sweet and savory, bitter and tangy, salty and spicy like few others can. By providing greater access to spices—the cornerstones of these cuisines—we hope to provide greater access to a broader range of tastes, flavors, and cultures.
Eastern flavors are not the only benefit that comes from using our products. With East West Spice, the process of cooking is also a joy. We know how frustrating typical spice containers can be—always opening and closing the cap causes spices to lose their freshness, and it’s a hassle to wrestle a measuring spoon into such a small mouth. We set out to eliminate these issues, prioritizing freshness and ease-of-use when developing our innovative packaging.
Inside of every East West Spice bottle, you will find pre-measured, individually sealed spice sticks that lock in freshness. Just use one spice stick for every teaspoon and three spice sticks for every tablespoon. Our bulk bags feature resealable zippers, enabling you to keep your spices sealed, and making it easy to measure out the exact amount of spice that you need.
Tea should be taken seriously. Our teas are the purest essence of tea -- organically grown and Soil Association Organic Certified, with no artificial flavouring or fanning. Each delicate leaf is carefully selected for quality during the slow growth season, when the plant is in its top condition. The result is a tastefully blended, fragrant tea with full flavour and rich character in each enjoyable sip.
Our brand East West Tea is rooted in a strong commitment to quality and uniqueness. We strive to be organic and source our tea from gardens certified to the highest standards, which use no pesticides, harmful chemicals or processing. We believe tea is best in its purest form, and we live up to that promise with every cup.
Quality and purity are the core of our company values. All of our farms are fully organic, free from modern pesticides. Local farmers utilize centuries-old techniques to keep their plants happy, healthy, and pest-free, without exposing their crops to harmful chemicals. We harvest crop at their peak, then run them through our extensive lab process to ensure that they meet our high standards.
American Wave cares deeply about our growers, and we make sure to give back to them. We demonstrate this care from the most basic level first, paying every single farmer fairly. When you buy our products, you not only gain a delicious, organic product, you also provide a nutritious meal to a child in Asia. We have partnered with “The Akshaya Patra Foundation”, a registered UK charity.
